HotAnt Designs

The HotAnt Design 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
