Fiberstone is a mixture of fiberglass and crushed stone. Fiberstone is a versatile material. It can have a rough and sandy texture which makes it look and feel like real stone or finished concrete. It can also have a smooth to lightly textured finish. These materials create a durable material that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use at any temperature. It can be colored, natural, or have a weathered aged look.
The combination of these materials used to make fiberstone produce the appearance of natural stone but is lightweight and more versatile than natural stone. Additionally, fiberstone is easier to move than identical concrete and natural stone products. The reinforced fiberglass backing of fiberstone makes it less fragile than concrete.
Ficonstone is similar to fiberstone. Ficonstone is a combination of fiberglass, cement, sand, and finely ground stone. Ficonstone has a natural, rough heavy feeling.
Decorating is simple and inexpensive when using artificial flowers and fruits & vegetables. Silk flowers casually dropped in vases appear natural and fresh-cut, just like fresh flowers. Artificial flower “drop-ins” are the easiest, least costly way to fill every room with colorful flowers that do not wither or wilt.
No floral design expertise is required. Similarly, create tabletop décor right out of a fashion magazine with artificial fruits or vegetables simply mounded in bowls or compotes. Your bowls or ours. No muss, no fuss!
Waterlook® is our exclusive trademarked process for achieving the illusion of fresh-cut flowers in water. Each Waterlook® arrangement is handcrafted by our team of artisans in our in-house studio. Waterlook® stays clear and resists discoloring indefinitely. It has the same refraction as clear standing water, so submerged stems exhibit the same slight magnification as real water.
The process of making Waterlook® is an art form in and of itself. It takes several days to create and hand pour Waterlook®. Each artisan has years of experience. Each pour and step of the process is meticulously inspected to meet our high-quality standards. Only the best will be accepted and become an official Waterlook® product.
Waterlook® cures to a solid, smooth, and non-sticky finish so dust does not adhere to its surface. Cleaning Waterlook® is easy. Simply use a duster, wet wipe, or hair dryer on cool setting.
Treat Waterlook® florals the same as you would fresh flower arrangements. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight or extremes of heat or cold. Exposure to intense UV rays can cause eventual discoloration of any clear polymer.
