Waterfowl sculptures start as hand carved original Tupelo Gum woodcarvings by Master Carver Sam Nottleman. Original paint schemes are designed and hand painted by Samís wife Lilly. Casting molds are made from Samís originals and from these molds each sculpture is then hand-cast. Depending on the type of sculpture, we use a variety of casting mediums to insure we capture every detail of the original woodcarving. After casting, each sculpture is subject to many more hand operations including removing any seam lines or casting blemishes. After finishing the raw sculpture, our staff of talented artists hand paints each one to Lillyís specifications using acrylic paints. Acrylic paints are the most fade resistant and when combined with our protective finish they insure your sculpture will become a treasured family heirloom.
A Certificate of Authenticity adds to each decoy's collectability. The certificate features the embossed signature of the Master Carver, the sculpture name, and the limited edition number.
All of these sculptures are guaranteed for your total satisfaction. If you are ever unsatisfied with any of these cast decoys or sculptures for any reason we will be happy to replace, exchange or refund your money. If the problem is a defect or shipping damage issue we will cover the cost of return shipping
