All statues are available as a special order for outdoor use. You can never put an indoor statue outdoors and expect it to last more than a year. Many companies simply spray a thin coating over their indoor statues and call them exterior finishes. These also will not last, and will quickly crack and degrade in even normal outdoor weather conditions.
Our outdoor statues are made from scratch with special materials designed to look great for a long time outdoors with minimal care. Here is our process:
1. We start with a heavy-duty commercial grade resin mixed with marble dust.2. Then we cover it with an epoxy-based exterior primer.3. Then we paint it with highly-specialized automotive-grade exterior paints.4. Then we bake the statue in a special infra-red oven to fully cure the automotive paints.5. Finally, we top them with a UV-protectant polyurethane clear coat finish.
The result of this process is a very hard and very strong finish that has proven over many decades to withstand hot sun and also severe winters.
As special materials and coatings are utilized, exterior finishes cost more than interior finishes. Monotone finishes, which are all one color such as all white, bronze, stone, etc., are a slight upcharge. However, full-color exterior finishes are quite a bit more complex, thus quite a bit more expensive than an monotone exterior finish. The resulting look of a full-color exterior finish is fairly similar to the full-color interior finish, although not exactly. Most exterior colors are just a slightly different shade than the interior finish. While we can also achieve the fancy decorative finish, the embellishments are not quite as elaborate as their interior counterparts, although still very beautiful. Please see more pictures of our exterior finishes in our “Outdoor Statues” section.
Any metal crowns, halos or accessories are not usable outdoors as they will quickly corrode and oxidize. If these accessories are desired, we can make them from resin so they are permanently part of the statue. This would be a special order and an additional cost. Please call or email us for a specific quote.
Keep in mind that exterior statues need regular care and cleaning. Please refer to our full explanation of our recommended care instructions in our FAQ section.
