back to the dawn of man, stones had many different
uses in everyday society. They were used to build
walls to keep intruders away, as weapons, and
as burial reminders. As man evolved, he began
to see that he could carve stone into images or
shapes with the use of a chisel type tool.
Many different types of stone are used in creating
statues and sculptures. Examples include marble,
limestone, and rock. Sculptors, however, have
created stone substitutes
in order to make manufacturing statues a quicker
and more accurate process.
Tuffstone™ is the highest quality casting
plaster available and by far the
preferred casting medium for plaster statues.
The primary characteristics that separate Tuffstone™
from other plaster products are its great durability
and reduced chalkiness. While it comes standard
in a classic white, there are often choices for
other finishes for these Tuffstone™ pieces.
Like other plaster castings, however, these statues
are not suited for outdoor use.
Durastone™ has very similar characteristics
to Tuffstone™, in that it provides superior
quality in casting and excellent durability.
Statue.com is proud to offer an extensive selection
of stone statues and sculptures. For the most
part, these stone works are scattered around in
our various galleries.
