What is the correct body posture to prevent back injuries? Transporting heavy furnitures and large objects in an incorrectly way is one of the most common causes of back pain. You can reduce this risk by ensuring and using the stronger muscles (quadriceps) of the legs so they can be used to do the hardest and the most of the work. Keep your back completely straight every time. Bend your knees to lift the objects from the knees level. In case of a heavy box, kneel beside the box with feet about 30 cm apart. To raise it, rest it on the body. It is important that when you are lifting heavy furnitures you should bend your knees rather than your back. To leave a heavy piece of furniture on the floor it has to adopt the same principle, not to bend your body under any circumstances and always using the legs. For transporting luggage or shopping bags, you should try to balance the weights on both arms. It is less harmful to your back, to carry all the weight like this, rather that with one arm, which will make you lean to one side forcing your spine.     How to transport the porcelain figurines of Lladro and others? The most convenient, given the fragility of porcelain figurines, is to transport them with boxes (specially with the lladro box), but always, being involved with very soft material, foam or bubble wrap. When the porcelain contains many flowers, slender fingers or shapes with a high risk of failure, it is best to wrap them as little as possible and try to hold the porcelain box from the base. What the company, Cocowif, usually do with susceptible delicate porcelains of breakage is to put soft materials, and try to attach the porcelain figurine from the base. The materials we use are subject to the bubble wrap, bags of compressed air, rock wool or even cartons wrapped strategically placed; causing the porcelain figurine to be absolutely immobilized. With this procedure, we managed to avoid having to wrap the figurine of porcelain of Lladro, from the top and achieve by this way to reduce the risk of breakage at the most delicate moment of the process, which is the time when we have to take out the figurine of porcelain Lladro from the box. Remember, that the most important thing is to set correctly the porcelain to the base and for large figurines is very important to hold them with rapes from the trunk, of the figurine, but always being protected with bubble wrap between the porcelain and the...

How can I portray my figurines of porcelain Lladro with a photo camera? First of all, we have to choose the best way to portray the porcelain figurines by trying to have the best possible posture. If the porcelain figurine is low level, sit with one leg curled under you and bring your elbows to your knees to prevent the camera swings; if the approach we’re trying to get is even lower, drop on the floor with legs apart. When portraying porcelain figurines of Lladro in an interior space with natural light, place the piece in a location close to a window, so indirect sunlight can be received, in order to have a special light effect on the porcelain. Interior lighting Work with natural light and with artificial lighting. Do not use fluorescent lights, as distort colors and brightness of the porcelain. For dramatic effect, try a side lighting and in order to soften the shadows put a white card and set a light beside the porcelain figurine, making the light shine.     How to do the close-ups of the porcelain figurines? We need a target for close-ups or a telescopic tube to be installed between the normal lens and the camera. The telescopic tube increases the distance between the film and the lens and provides an even greater increase of the photo. Focus on the part of the porcelain figurine that you need to emphasize, as when shooting close up, the depth of focus is scarce. Likewise, remove most unwanted objects that appear, because they can distract from porcelain figurine. If the porcelain figurine is exposing for a possible sale on internet, place a large cardboard in the back of the porcelain, preferably with a color that make contrast with the true color of the porcelain. If the figurine of the porcelain Lladro is dark, cardboard should be white and if the Lladro porcelain figurine is White or biscuit, cardboard should be dark or black directly. When our intention is only to display porcelain figurine, my advice is to take a picture of the figurine in its environment. The photo should capture the space where the porcelain is located, including the furniture where it rests, the back wall or a general place, where you can appreciate the effect on the decoration. To know how to expose the figurines in a picture is a real important aspect to take into account, because a bad picture could abort the possibility to sell a figurine of porcelain...

What is a Rosary and what is it? The rosary is an item to perform a prayer of the Catholic religion, which lives up to twenty mysteries of the life of Jesus and the Virgin Mary. Its usefulness is just the lead by the number of prayers that are performed with this prayer, because after each of the mysteries, we must recite one Our Father, ten Hail Marys and one Glory Father.

Who were the creators of porcelain figurines of Lladro?

Who were the creators of porcelain figurines of Lladro?

Posted by on May 20, 2015 in English, Figurines, Lladro, Lladró advices, Porcelain | 0 comments

The founders of the Lladro brand and of course the company LLadro, are three brothers, Juan, José and Vicente. All three have been responsable, from the beginning, of the success of each and every one of the porcelain figurines. Juan, the eldest brother, has a dreamy way of thinking, seems an unrealistic person, a peaceful poet. He is a dreamer, he does not like the word miracle, though, if you think there has been some kind of blessing on them. Certainly a miracle appears here from the point of business, financial and commercial perspective. It is the most innovative of the three brothers. José, the second of the Lladro brothers, is a healthy-looking man, big and strong. The business organization tasks have not yet erased from his face the embers of many generations of Valencian orphans. He is the most conservative, classic Vicente, the youngest, has a deeply and determined way to look. It is the balance between the three brothers, he attempts to combine the passion of his brother Juan, to create worlds out of nothing, and the strong idea of his other brother José, to keep everything in the way it is. This balance will be perhaps the result of this collective art that are finally all the porcelain figurines of Lladro. And balance is the same as saying harmony, the soul of art. How has the splendor of Lladro becomes true and possible? The truth, without giving more turns, the real responsible for the success of these porcelain figurines is the hard work and the talent of the three brothers and all his team of artists. They insisted  as much as posible, to making a mark on the work and very much in the achievement of constant perfection. They started from almost children in decorating tiles and study. This individualized art, outside the workshops where their living, their work was born in the courtyard of his family home. Due to the fact, that companies could not offer development to their talent, they started to sell its first pictures. One of these paintings have been recovered over the time. The buyer who purchased it for 1,000 pesetas (6 euros), appeared in his office reporting he was the owner of this work of art. As they are fanatic and have a special affection for those first artistic Works, performed together on the principles, they insisted on buying it and paid for it half a million pesetas ( Three thousand euros). The truth, as they say, what they would have paid as much as the man would have demanded, and now they say they would not sell it for anything in the world. Cocowif, is a company specializes in finding in retired and limited edition porcelain figurines of Lladro.  We have one of the biggest collection of porcelain Lladro. So do not hesitate to ask for any figurine of...
