You’ll be proud of your art and have fun exploring new directions while you “go into uncharted territory” with your creativity. Like a creative partner, we help you find new creative direction to get recognition (and sales) of your art work.
Expert Mold-Making Services
Our traditional “Lost Wax” casting process allows you to replicate your work with incredible detail. Using only the finest mold making materials, you will get a very detailed and accurate mold of your original work. We allow you to participate in the process by performing a “wax check” prior to casting so you’ll be able to make sure it’s perfect before going into production. Plus, our in- house mold makers’ keen understanding of the entire art production process allows us to design your mold for ease of production allowing us to get your art reproduction finished efficiently and precisely while keeping your costs down.
Sculpture Enlargement and Reduction Capabilities
Many customers will like your art, but want a custom size. We can scale your work up or down in size digitally to give you and your customers more options. This can save you time allowing you to satisfy your customers more quickly and allow you to sell more art by offering sizing options. For example, you can run 3 editions (small, medium and large) off the same original so you can cater to your customer’s and galleries needs and sell more. Plus, sculpture enlargement/reduction allows you the added benefit of working in a size that’s comfortable for you and then later scaling it to the size you wish to publish.
Knowledgeable Staff And Marketing Direction
Want to know what’s on the “cutting edge” or the latest trends? Want to know what’s successfully selling in the galleries so you can produce work that appeals to today’s market? We can guide you with current trends and recommendations on additional sizes, patina choices, and styles. If you need marketing direction we can show you how to make the progression from selling your own work to working with art publisher’s and galleries.
