Showroom Business Hours
Want to see our items up and close before you purchase. Come stop by our showroom. We are open from Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM., Saturday & Sundays closed.

About our Products
All our items are produced from a durable high quality polyester resin, hand laminated and fully reinforced with FIBERGLASS. These are NOT to be confused with the thousands of low cost, unreinforced highly brittle POLY RESIN castings coming out of China. These models are whimsical home decor masterpieces which offer a variety of functional uses and a broad appeal to collectors of every type. Therefore you might find that each one may be a little different in color and may have some imperfections, this is what makes each of them unique!

Production and Finishing.
These products all receive a final clear coat in the factory, but as all clear finishes will eventually deteriorate in full sun. It is advised that if you intend to display the item permanently outdoors, you will have to do maintenance on them and should periodically reapply a clear protective coat (which should be tested first on an inconspicuous part of the casting). These products will last indefinitely if used indoors but as the use of the products is beyond our control, no warranties are offered! If used outdoors and especially in full sun for any extended period, you should be prepared to undertake some maintenance to the finishes. Any protection from the sun, even the shade of a tree, will significantly reduce fading and other wear to the paint surfaces.

We strongly suggest that in extremely inclement weather and freezing temperatures that you store your statues indoor. Water based acrylic outdoor paints are mostly used on our products. Our sculptures are NOT TOY'S and only certain designs will be suited to be accessed by children.

The company's production is focused mainly on a captured market of handmade decorations, statues and furniture molded out of polyester resin and fiberglass and reinforced with steel, specializing in life-sized figurine variations. All products pass through twenty-five (25) or so quality controllers from start to finish, ensuring the best and most durable quality of product lines. Safety and hazard measures are also installed within the company's premises to ensure healthy working conditions for the workers.

Moving your Product.
Take care in lifting the product. Always lift the item at the most meaty area, avoid lifting from arms and limbs.

What is Resin?
For the most part, fiberglass statues are the same as resin statues. Made from the threads of glass, fiberglass is created by forcing molten glass through a sieve that spins it into threads. However, since the fiberglass pours as a liquid, it reflects all the fine details of the mold. Concrete, on the other hand, is thick and grainy and does not penetrate well into the fine detail of a mold. Fiberglass is an ideal material for large sculptures because it is light enough that people can move statues made from it without the help of a crane. Fiberglass statues also cost considerably less to ship than concrete statues. Of course, fiberglass is also very strong. It is reinforced and is the same material used to make boat hulls that are designed to withstand the shock and the elements of the sea without breaking. Concrete, while durable enough for outdoors, applications will break into pieces if hit or knocked over. Fiberglass is also a much less expensive medium.
