How are glass fiber sculpture created? In order to create a plastic sculpture, the original wooden model must be available, from which a shape is made that shows exactly all details, facets, subtleties, knife cuts, shapes and waves of a statue carved in wood. So, it is a photocopy, a restoration or also called replica and duplicate of the wooden model without changing the beauty and naturalness of the sculpture. Only a true connoisseur distinguishes a wooden statue from a plastic one.

The very first operation for the creation of a work in this polyresin wood paste is the realization of the wooden model.
