The Process of Artful Crafting
Crafts from the heart
Step 1.HOTANT DESIGNS
The HotAnt Designs team captures the spirit, individuality, and playfulness of animals in their natural environment. This is the core of our craft. Each sketch draws in the viewer to experience the visceral impact of the artist’s affinity with the animal world.
Over 50 gifted designers and sculptors collaborate with HotAnt Designs and experience the animal world as an endless source of fascination. They present our customers with approximately 100 new original designs per month.
HotAnt has a track record of over 20 years successfully applying high quality outdoor paint to our garden products and guarantees long lasting color. Our color lab has a collection of over 5,000 colors allowing the best replication of the beauty of nature.
HotAnt makes every effort to make the “A” side of products by designing the direction of joint line elaborately. We also ensure the service life of each pair of molds is strictly counted and managed.
Step 5.SLIP CASTING
The quality of resin material determines the final performance of resin crafts. Only the top three branded resin material providers in the industry are listed as HotAnt’s suppliers. The unique formula of raw materials makes the surface of final product smooth and solid.
Step 6.BODY TRIMMING
In this process, workers carefully remove excessive parts and replenish the holds on the body, ensuring the perfection of products’ appearance.
Step 7.REFINED CARVING
The second refined carving is HotAnt’s unique production process, which minimizes detail lost during the production. Workers in this section are able to quickly recognize the hair direction around the joint line and carve delicately on the body.
Step 8.COLOR PAINTING
The quality of color painting is an important criterion for judging the quality of crafts. Instead of single-color single- layer painting, HotAnt adopts multi-layer and comprehensive color painting technics. This process makes HotAnt products stand out among others in the same category by giving every product a vivid look.
