you've ever tried painting plastercraft (also known as "plaster of paris"),
you know what a fun craft it is and it's easy
to paint! If
you haven't, you don't know what a fun time you're missing! If you like to paint ceramics, you'll find that it's the same but there's no firing or kiln necessary. Try painting our plastercraft statues and you will
quickly see how easy a professional finish
can be. Most statues and wall art plaques
can be painted in less than an hour!
Plastercrafts are similar to ceramics, but there is no firing or kiln necessary. Simply use easy water based acrylic paints.
Our family has been in the plaster statue
manufacturing business since 1962 in New
Jersey and we have always taken great pride
in our quality! From small
Lighted Christmas Village Houses
Decorative Plaster Pedestals
, we use the highest grade statuary
plaster available so our statues have a very
high surface strength and the brightest white
appearance. They also require less paint because
the surface is less porous than traditional
statues, so the paint has a solid surface
area to adhere to.

waterbased acrylic paints
All our plastercraft figurines arrive white, unpainted and are ready to paint unless otherwise specified. Why buy painted when you can paint your own statue? Paint it yourself to suit your house decor or just leave them as white art plaster. Many of our statues look great unpainted, a great example of a statue that can be left white is the
David statue by Michelangelo
. Columns and pedestals will also look great white but they can be painted with acrylic latex paint to match your decor. Many other classical statues will look great as white-ware.
Try it, it's easy, inexpensive and fun.
