Planter Production Steps

1. For every planter design, whether standard or custom, a mold is created in the exact size, shape, and dimensions of the final product. Unsurprisingly, the mold itself is also made from fiberglass!

2. The mold is filled with the correct ratio of fiberglass and high-quality polyester resin. To start with, resin is poured into the mold and evenly hand-brushed. Sheets of spun fiberglass are cut, shaped and inserted into the mold, and then more resin follows. The procedure is repeated until the desired size and shape of the planter are obtained.

3. After the planter has solidified in the mold, it is taken out and checked for any rough or protruding surfaces, then trimmed and left to dry. The average time needed for a planter to dry sufficiently is 3-5 days.

4. When the planter is hard enough, it is taken to the finishing department where our highly-skilled artisans finish it by hand meticulously. At this stage, the planter is trimmed of any excess material and sanded evenly to ensure that the planter’s surface is smooth.

5. The planter is then dusted off and painted with a red primer. This adds another waterproof layer to the planter and also gives us another opportunity to control the quality of the finish.

6. Depending on the order type and its destination, the planter is covered with our standard gray primer and/or the topcoat of your choice.

7. Dust is removed for the final time, the planter is packed and it begins its long journey to someone’s living room or office!
