An explanation on the unique and strong materials we off for castings

Fibreglass

This is an incredibly strong material and extremely lightweight, so hanging your casting is as easy as hanging a picture. This is our most affordable option for body castings. The casting is coloured topically with professional and delicate colours to achieve a variety of faux metal looks or polished finishes depending on your final colour choice. Fibreglass is only available for Body Castings.

Fibreglass castings take 9-12 weeks to create and deliver.

Taking care of your fibreglass casting:

- Always keep your casting away from direct sunlight as this will fade the colour of the final piece.

- Never use any cleaning products when dusting the casting, only use a soft lint free cloth to keep it clean.

Cold Cast Metal

This is our most popular material choice due to the finish provided from the material. This material is made from a mix of resin with real metals; copper, bronze, aluminium, iron or brass.

This creates a realistic metal finish that can be aged or polished to look and feel like real metal. because the colour comes from the metal within the casting, these castings can be handled much more and touched.

Cold cast metal is available for body castings, baby castings, pet castings & holding hand castings. The metal content makes the holding hand castings quite heavy with a beautiful weight due to the mass of material. However whilst the body castings are a little heavier than fibreglass they are not as heavy as the hand castings.

Cold Cast castings take 13-16 weeks to create and deliver.

Taking care of your cold metal casting:

- Always keep your casting away from direct sunlight as this will fade the colour of the final piece.

- Never use any cleaning products when dusting the casting, only use a soft lint free cloth to keep it clean.
