Many of your Solar Statues are made of resin. What is resin?
Resin is a remarkably durable substance that is fast becoming the material of choice for the production of garden ornaments. Resin has the appearance of metal and the feel of wood. It is much lighter in weight than concrete or stone and offers heightened detail.
What is the best way to care for my Solar Statues?
Your resin Solar Statue is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. If left outside, your Solar Statue will weather and develop a unique character all its own. And, with proper care, you can expect your resin garden statue to last many years.
Our manufacturers recommend that every product be given an annual coat of UV protectant spray or polyurethane spray to protect against UV rays. We also recommend that your products not be left in direct sunlight for extended periods of time. Over a period of weeks or years, direct sunlight may cause your products to fade.
Polyurethane spray can be purchased from hardware stores and is most commonly found in the paints department. We are unfortunately unable to offer this product to our online customers due to strict aviation laws relating to aerosols. Only a light spray is required and it is important to remove any dust or debris from the surface of the product before spraying. Also remember that a certain amount of sun fade is inevitable over a prolonged period of time on some products, however this will simply add to the unique character and charm of your Solar Statue pieces.
How long will my Solar Statue take to charge?
6 hours of direct sunlight per day is ideal.
How long will the battery on my Solar Statue last?
Battery life can vary from statue to statue. Typically, you can expect a fully charged battery to last around 8 hours.
