How We Make Our Statuettes
Molds and Cases
Every case is unique and made to fit it's statue. The inner rubber mold has to regularly be repoured from the master to maintain the detail in each casting.
Using our secret recipe which we've perfected over the years, the bronze resin is mixed, poured into the mold and cured.
Once the resin is set the statue is carefully removed from the mold. Next the base is sanded smooth and it moves to Fettling and Assembly.
In fettling the seam lines are removed and any imperfections in the casting repaired. The statues are also assembled, some are cast in multiple parts and finer details like rifles are made in pewter since resin would break to easily.
Once the statue is assembled it moves on for touching up. Here a special bronze resin is used blend the statue and pewter parts into a seamless piece.
In a final finish the statues recieves a coat of lacquer which seals the bronze and gives it extra lustre.
Base and Brass Plate
In final assembly of the statue the brass plate is engraved with the wording and mounted on the wooden base. A cap badge can also be added to the statue.
Each statue is packed in special expanding foam to offer maximum protection wherever in the world it is going.
