Every ornament received a base spray primer (typically 2-3 layers) which is allowed to set for a minimum of 24 hours. For all ornaments, the base paint layer is applied by spraying, typically 2 coats for consistent coverage. After a 24 hour dry time, hand detailing begins. The Moon and Earth ornaments are painted with a brush to create accurate details of major features. Following several applications, each ornament is again allowed to set for at least 24 hours before a UV protective overcoat is applied. A complete ornament will typically require one week to complete when cure time for the primer and paint layers is factored in.
Each ornament is hand painted by the artist, Sorin, in his Denver, CO studio. There are no assistants or other helpers. Ornaments come in a clear plastic gift box, and are shipped in a larger cardboard shipping box to ensure safe delivery.
