Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make your products

Our products are of the highest quality and are completely made by hand with the aid of moulds that are then used to cast a fibreglass/resin composite which is then sanded and painted by hand.

What do you make your products with?

The majority of our products are made of a fibreglass/resin composite which is strong but lightweight.
Some models use stone and marble powders, metal powders (iron, bronze, aluminum and copper), and color pigments to achieve a high quality finish.
In addition to this, we use superior polyurethane paints, automotive lacquers, and acrylics.
We also supply #ALBAmazing models carved from solid wood.

What is fibreglass resin?

Fibreglass is a lightweight material that is very strong, so much so that it is used to make aircraft, boats, automobiles, bath tubs and enclosures, swimming pools, hot tubs, water tanks, roofing, surfboards etc
Because fibreglass is so light, it makes our life sized statues much easier to lift and move around as well as keeping delivery costs to a minimum.

How long do your products last?

By following our after care advice, your product’s finish will last for many years.

Can your products be kept outdoors?

All our models can be kept outdoors, however for prolonged periods, we advise a coat of lacquer (which we can supply) along with a robust maintenance regime.

Can you make items using specific designs?

Absolutely – we can take your ideas and/or drawings and have your design sculpted in polystyrene with clay and/or plaster. as you can appreciate, this can take some time if your design is intricate and/or includes numerous fine details.
When you have approved your sculpture we then create a master mould to finally produce your design – turning your own designs into reality!

Can we make changes to the design?

Yes, as long as all changes are made prior to design approval, before the clay/plaster sculpture is made.

When will my item(s) be shipped?

Bespoke orders are usually complete within 6-12 months following approved design and will take six weeks to ship.
For more information on shipping please contact us.

Can we visit you?

Absolutely. We have a large UK warehouse and a showroom to display some of the smaller stock items. You can find our details on the ‘Get in Touch!’ page.
