How We Do It

Now some people are so amazed that they do not believe that we do everything from scratch and some are simply interested if we do all the work behind our art and if yes, then what are the steps that we take.

Everything starts with the artist’s imagination. When the vision of your idea is clear or at least there is something to start with, the drawing is created. After the drawing there are many other things that should be taken into consideration: what is the function of that particular art item and where it will be exposed (indoor, outdoor, high traffic area or somewhere where no one will touch it and so on). The most important part here is to choose the right medium or material to work with that will suite the purpose. Here is an example: the life size elephant is an outdoor sculpture, many will come close and touch it or even will attempt to climb on top of it. Therefore we were left with a few solutions – bronze, concrete or fibreglass etc. All of these materials are suitable for outdoor application but each of them has their advantages and disadvantages. Our choice was fibreglass. Next, we have to decide whether we will need to make one item or we have to create duplicates. Since we had two elephants in plan we decided to create a mould. It is also very important to decide what material one will or can use to create the mould as it is a turning point in your price calculations.

Once again the creator faces different options: silicone rubber, fibreglass, plaster of Paris and so on. On this particular task fibreglass was the solution for it all.

Now, what is next?

Creating the original master piece!  Good luck!

Variety of modelling clays, plaster of Paris, different resins and foams are there to assist us in our creativity. Our artistic skills, knowledge, prayer and mercy from Above are the determining points of the success.

As soon as we are done with sculpting there is no time to relax because it is not the final result and we still have a long way to go. We should create our mould. With each and every sculpture our knowledge is put to test. If we fail our most valued master piece will be trapped in the mould forever or will come out in pieces.

Casting, mould release agents and other accessories help us to be successful. If everything goes all right, we are lucky to see the sculpture in its nature’s beauty. We will finish it up with some painting effects and voila!

To make story short, drawing, sculpting using modelling clay (considering other options), making mould with silicone rubber or other materials, casting and finishing off. These are the steps for some intricate sculpture activities in our workshop.

If you are interested in more, please do not hesitate to write to us and we will share some information with you but do not forget: Every workshop has its “secrets”!

Let us talk about the materials that we use. Canvas and acrylic paints are used to create stunning painted screens /backdrops for the stage. Fibreglass and a variety of different resins are used to create large size props (pillars, mandaps, table pieces and other features). Impact resistant coated foam is used to create original sculptures for your stage setup.
