ARE ALL YOUR PLASTERCRAFT STATUES UNPAINTED? I SEE THAT THE PICTURES ARE IN COLOR...
All of our items are unpainted with the exception of some religious items that are available painted, but they're on a separate page which says "Pre-Painted" on the left hand column link. Everything else is unpainted, paintable and ready to paint.
And remember, many items can be left unpainted such as the busts or pedestals. It's all up to you!
CAN YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN THE MEASUREMENTS FOR EACH ITEM?
Length (L) = From the front of the item to the back at it's deepest point.
Width (W) = From left to right at the widest point.
Height (H) = From bottom to top at the highest point.
IF I WANT TO PAINT MY STATUE, DO I NEED TO USE A SPECIAL PAINT?
No special paints are needed. Your best bet is to use regular water based acrylic paints. You can even use your own house paint to match your decor. If you're going to use spray paint instead, just give a first coat with a matte finish or a primer before using a gloss spray. This helps to save you money and creates a better finish on the piece.
DOES PLASTERCRAFT NEED TO BE FIRED?
Absolutely not! One of the greatest features of painting plaster craft is that it doesn't need to be fired. Our items come ready paint or you can leave them unpainted if you'd like. You can find more information on the
differences between painting ceramics and painting plastercraft by clicking here.
CAN I BUY JUST ONE STATUE FROM YOU OR DO I NEED TO HAVE A STORE?
You can buy as many or as few items as you'd like. We ship throughout the continental United States via UPS ground.
DO THE WALL PLAQUES COME READY TO HANG ON MY WALLS?
Any of our plastercraft items that are intended to hang on the wall will come ready to hang. Wall plaques, mirrors and frames all come with round hanging hooks embedded. Brackets come with sawtooth hangers embedded so they can be hung as flush to the wall as possible.
PLASTERCRAFT STATUES BE USED OUTDOORS?
The answer to this is yes and no.
Plaster is a porous surface, so water will deteriorate
the statue if it is not sealed properly. The best method we have used to seal plaster for outdoor use is
with spar varnish or marine varnish. The statue
should be painted first with acrylic paint - cover
the entire surface including the bottom. Then
seal the entire piece. Spar varnish is available
in gloss and satin finish at any marine or hardware
