The high demand for wooden artworks and religious motifs led our company Dolfi to look for a new collection, cheaper but of comparable quality in relation to traditional wood carving. Thus, was born the DOLFI collection of religious articles made of resin mixed with wood chips.
This material is a paste of wood dust, resin, vegetable oil and solvents that is easily moldable and does not require catalysts or heat sources.
The very first operation for the creation of a work in this polyresin wood paste is the realization of the wooden model.
The experience of our master sculptors comes from a rich and traditional research in religious art. From the original wooden model, a mold is made, from which the wooden figure in wood pulp is obtained, retouched and painted by hand.
The painting process is the same as for religious wood carvings. We use oil paints of the highest quality.
The elegant decorations enriched with gold leaf are due to the skillful hands of our painters. Sacral art of resin figurines DOLFI includes many saints and Madonna’s.
Among the statues of saints that stand out, we propose St. Francis, St. Anthony, St. Joseph, Sacred Heart of Jesus, St. Michael, St. George, St. Francis, St. Peter and Paul, St. Teresa and many other saintly statues.

The model and the mold are identical: this means that you can use the model to make molds.
This is useful to explain the attention we pay to the realization of the models: we consider it very important to proceed in most cases to the realization of a provisional model to be able to test before proceeding to the final production mold.
