Local artists model the figurines which are cast on the premises. The cast resin pieces are then cleaned up and base painted. The individual hand-painting of the animals are done off-site by local painters.
The hand-painting on the American Buffalo is a great job and realistic looking, especially for an one that is about an inch long.
Want to Collect?:
Lammermuir Collectables are in gift shops worldwide and can also be ordered online direct from their web site. Because the Minimals are so small and light weight, the cost for overseas shipping is quite low and several can be combined for one shipping cost.
The Bottom Line:
I've also been captivated by the miniature creatures and will definitely need to hide Nessie from my grandson who loves The Water Horsemovie. Nessie is not quite the same as Crusoe, but close enough for a little boy's imagination.
These collectibles are a great idea for:
- Animal collectors
- Doll house and miniaturists. Although the scale won't be perfect for all the pieces, some of pet figures will work great.
Check size of dogs
- A collector who doesn't have room for large pieces
- Collectors on a budget, most pieces are $5. and under.
- School-age and older children, too small for youngster who still put stuff in their mouth!
