Care Instructions for your Randam Art Items
To ensure the longevity and beauty of your art lamp please follow these care instructions.
To Clean: Wipe with soft dry, or damp cloth only. Do not soak or scrub. DO NOT USE chemical cleaners or abrasives. Do not immerse in water.
Indoor Use Only: Your lamp is intended for regular indoor use only and may be damaged if used outside for more than a short temporary period.
STORAGE: Improper care can cause damage to the painted surface of your lamp. Care should be taken to wrap and pack carefully as you would for any breakable item. The ‘dimensional’ style lamp has additional care instructions. Remember to remove batteries from battery operated lamps before long term storage.
Dimensional Paint Style: Some painted bottle lights are created with dimensional paint. It is a normal property of the paint to be soft; this will harden over time but may always have some give to the paint. Be sure not to wrap in such a way that any hard object is pressed into the paint as it may cause damage. When wrapping or storing make sure that the light plug (or any other hard object) does not press heavily onto the surface of the paint. Wrap the plug well in bubble wrap or some other packaging that will shield the hard edges from the lamp. Do not store with heavy or sharp objects resting on top of the lamp. For long term storage remove batteries (if battery powered) or remove lights or unplug the base of the lamp and warp separately.
USB plug wooden bases: These detached bases contain a single LED light inset to light the lamp from below. Plug is USB only (with on/off toggle switch) and will plug into any USB outlet/plug. You will need a regular USB adapter to plug into a wall socket. Per the instructions that accompany these lights – Do not leave light on unattended. Light may get warm with prolonged use especially in warm climates or used near heat sources. As with any light you should use caution. Do not plug in if cord becomes damaged.
LED mini lights: Ready to plug in LED string lights are inserted inside the lamp through a hole in the back of the bottle. These can easily be replaced as needed. NOTE: Plug is USB only (with on/off toggle switch extension) and will plug into any USB outlet/plug. You will need a regular USB adapter to plug into a wall socket. These are removable. Remove slowly from the back of the bottle. As with any light you should use caution. Do not plug in if cord becomes damaged. Replace lights if necessary.
Battery cork stopper lights: These lights operate with 3 LR44 batteries (included) and have an on/off switch on the cork (top) for easy control. The manufacturer states they will light for 52 continuous hours per set of batteries. To replace batteries unscrew the screw on the battery cover, then remove the cover to access the battery compartment.
Table lamp – Standard North American Plug: This is an IKEA-manufactured table lamp that comes with a plain white glass shade and a standard North American plug. The lamp remains unaltered, except for the addition of a painted design on the outside of the glass shade. The recommended light bulb (LED E12) is not included in the package, but the manufacturer’s instructions for use will be provided. It’s worth
noting that my artistic modification has no impact on the lamp’s intended function as designed by the manufacturer.
Large Plug in wooden bases (wall plug): These bases are made to hold a single LED spotlight which is available from Ikea stores worldwide (Ledberg). The light has a lifetime of approx. 25,000 hours. To access the light for any reason unscrew the acrylic disc. Light will then twist and detach from the mounting and can be replaced if needed.
Older Style String lights (I no longer use these): These are removable. Remove slowly from the back of the bottle being careful not to pull hard on the lights. Gently pull out each bulb one at a time. Per the instructions that accompany these lights – Do not leave light on unattended. Bottle may get warm with prolonged use especially in warm climates or used near heat sources. As with any light you should use caution. Do not plug in if cord becomes damaged. Replace lights if necessary. We do not recommend string lights be used for children if left unattended. If replacing the light string do not use more than 10 count incandescent or 20 count LED strings. I no longer use these type of lights and recommend that when they need replacing you switch to the USB style mini lights that are now readily available.
To ensure the longevity and beauty of your item please follow these care instructions.
To Clean: Wipe with damp cloth. Do not soak or scrub. DO NOT USE chemical cleaners. Do not immerse in water.
Storage: Luminaries are created with dimensional textured paint. It’s a normal property of the paint to be soft; this will harden over time but may always have some give to the paint. To store, wrap & pack carefully as you would for any breakable item. When wrapping or storing make sure that hard or sharp objects do not press heavily onto the surface.
TIP: We recommend only using tea light candles as these do not leave wax in the base of the holder.
Appropriate care should be taken to ensure longevity and beauty of this one of a kind handmade Art on Glass. Gentle hand wash only is advised. Soaking, scrubbing, chemical cleaners & dishwashers are NOT recommended. Not microwave safe.
Your handmade piece of wearable art is a one of a kind. Whilst it is made with care and attention, using quality products, it is not indestructible. Here are some suggestions for the care of your little piece of art – the same care should be taken with all of your jewelry to ensure longevity and lasting beauty.
Jewelry should be the last thing you put on as you prepare for the day and the first to be removed at night. It’s recommended that you wipe down your jewelry before putting it away to remove any dirt and oils.
Try to avoid getting any personal care products on your jewelry, like moisturizer and hair spray as this can make a piece look cloudy or dirty.
Your jewelry may be water resistant, or even waterproof, however you should still remove it before swimming or bathing. Salt water, chlorine, and other chemicals in water can cause damage to jewelry. Household chemicals such as cleaning products as well as those found in pools and hot tubs can ruin your jewelry, they can even damage gold.
To clean your jewelry avoid jewelry cleaning chemicals as they might not be safe for all the materials in your handmade wearable art. The safest way to clean your jewelry is to simply wipe with a soft damp cloth. You can add a little mild detergent such as Dawn, if needed. Rinse with clear cool water and immediately pat dry with a soft dry cloth. Do not soak or scrub the piece and do not use chemical cleaners.
Items with resin should not be exposed to rubbing alcohol, as it will damage the protective surface.
