How to Care for your Product

All our Statues are manufactured 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. 

We recommend you keep them under cover and in doors.  However, these products all receive a final clear coat in the factory, but all clear finishes will eventually deteriorate in full sun or freezing winters.  It is advised that if you intend to display the item permanently outdoors, you will have to maintain them and should periodically reapply a clear protective coat, which should be tested first on an inconspicuous part of the casting. 

We strongly suggest that in extremely inclement weather and freezing temperatures that you store your statues in doors.  Water based acrylic outdoor paints are mostly used on our products. 

Our sculptures are NOT TOYS and only certain designs will be suited to be accessed by children.  

These products will last indefinitely if used indoors but as the use of the products are beyond our control, no warranties are offered. If used outdoors and especially in full sun or freezing winters 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. In windy cities, statues should be secured to permanent structures.
