The Techniques of Manufacturing the Collection
Every art piece is the result of an arduous and meticulous process. The craftsmen use brushes and cutting tool with advanced technologies to make a perfect mould, leading to fitness in design. The ‘Brushing’ & ‘Cutting’ is done to enhance the details of the product.
The sculpture is then washed with fresh water to cool it down. When the sculpture is dry, a spray varnishing covers the sculpture with a special lacquer to prevent any tarnishing. Later the product is put in a drying cabin to fully protect the sculpture against any type of oxidation.
The precious color is mixed with particular oils. This phase requires the highest degree of accuracy i.e. good sense of balance of quantifying the color and many hours of work. Only the skillful painters are used for the painting of the sculpture. After this as the final touch, the semiprecious Swarovski crystals are studded manually at predefined places.
