All Castagna figurines are cast from alabaster and resin. The alabaster is ground into fine powder and then reconstituted with a resinous binder and poured into molds. Once mixed, the raw materials undergo a chemical reaction devoid of an external heat source, a process known as "Cold Cast" molding. Once dried, the castings are removed from the molds. It is at this point where the talent of dedicated artisans and craftsmen hand-finish and paint each figurine. These figurines are cold cast in China and hand painted in Italy.
