Skilled artisans work from their homes in Bagni di Lucca, Italy to hand-paint these Fontanini figures using skills that have been passed down from generation to generation. The finely detailed figures are painted with a richly hued palette, then a final application of patina adds a mellow antique glow.
A single Fontanini figure can take up to two years from concept to completion, beginning with a detailed wax model and progressing through plaster and metal molds. The material used is a special polymer that never loses its beauty to chips or breakage. This makes Fontanini a special favorite with the families of curious children.
