“Hey there! Wanna buy some treasure..?”
The chest monster measures approximately 6” x 6” x 6” and highly-detailed on the outside and inside. At nearly four pounds, this is a hefty chest!
These hand-poured sculptures are made from an organic filler* mixed with resin. We chose to use organic filler as it has a dense wood-like appearance, and should it ever chip or scratch, it’s easy to fix with sanding as the material is consistent all the way through. Because these are hand-poured, there may be some micro-bubbles, which enhances the look of worm-pitted wood. Initial curing takes a little over one day to be solid; but takes several weeks to fully cure.

After pouring, rough edges are sanded down and the lid and base are each checked to ensure a good fit. The chest is then given a paint wash inside and out and rubbed down to enhance the grain of the wood and all the cracks and crevices. Next, the eyes are painted black and then given a glossy clear resin coat to add depth and personality.
To finish off the painted chest monster, we continue with several washes and painted aging effects on the banding, teeth, tongue and the interior. The inside is also sprayed with a clear, matte finish to help prevent paint chipping. Want to paint your own? We also offer a simple washed version with the eyes coated in resin.
*NOTE: We use cocoa bean shells for our organic filler. Please be warned if you have an allergy to cocoa.
