1. Request a Free Quote From Big Statues:
Call or email us today to request your free proposal! Provide us with the size and details of your project and we’ll send you a custom proposal including the price estimate and production timeline.
2. The Sketch:
Our design team will create an initial sketched rendition of your project based off the photos and information you provide, or completely from scratch.
3. Design Meeting:
Once you are ready to move forward with the project we will have a design meeting. We can fly to you, bringing samples of materials, drawings, and a miniature clay mold that we can manipulate on the spot.
Once we have all your input, we finalize the 14 inch model of your statue to visualize your project in 3D. (This model can also be purchased and used as an award, gift, or even marketing tool, to help raise funds).
5. Constant Communication:
We are in constant contact with you over the phone and online, sending you weekly photo and video updates of your project. Your ultimate satisfaction is our number one concern so if there is anything you would like us to change or add, we greatly welcome your input at any time.
6. The Armature:
We fashion a steel frame with added foam to secure the rough outline of your statue. Once we seal it with a latex coating, we are ready to sculpt!
7. The Sculpting Process:
We apply hundreds of pounds of hot clay by hand to create the first “block in” stage. Next we spend hundreds of hours adding, subtracting, molding, and sculpting every tiny detail to make your statue a museum-quality work of art.
If budget is a concern, we help you raise money. Sell limited edition miniature statues of your project to donors and they could receive a special engraving of their name at the statue’s base. Check out our fund-raising website where you can create your own donation link and forward to friends: https://secure.piryx.com/donate/ruSyZ5In/BIG-STATUES/
9. We Ship to Your Front Door:
After a final inspection, we package your statue and ship it 100% insured to the address of your choice, where it will be unloaded at your dock. If the monument is over 6 feet, a fork lift will be necessary to relocate the crated statue.
10. Final Installation:
Your package will include all of the equipment necessary to secure to its final base. We can accompany you to help with the installation and celebrate together during an unveiling ceremony.
