Drawing casts were originally used by European student artists during the Middle Ages as a means of practice for drawing and painting. Those studying art would use casts as means to practice scale and obtain realism, which was a popular movement at the time. Using drawing casts had the benefit of being inanimate. The student artist could take their time practicing their hand at shadowing and illustrating depth while using a drawing cast. Drawing casts usually consisted of geometrical shapes, hands and faces. Famous artists who used drawing casts in their studies include Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael.

Present day, drawing cast are still used by students. Those interested in teaching or learning art fundamentals would find our Geometrical Shape Set of Ten of great use.  The geometrical shapes are also highly desirable pieces for art collectors. Anyone with an eye for art and who is a lover of history would love to add the School Of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Horse Sculpture to their collection.

Drawing casts also make great gifts for those in the medical field. The exquisite details of the Ecorche Anatomical Man Study Model Artist Cast Sculpture  makes this statue a great medical school graduate gift.

Custom Statue Repair Statue.com has built a long reputation of making beautiful, timeless custom sculptures. However, did you know we have been repairing and restoring sculptures just as long?

Our expertise is not limited to one material. Whether we are working with plaster, cement, alabaster, marble, fiberglass or bronze; our restorations will have your sculpture refinished or repainted to their original state.

Furthermore, we can fix broken fingers, chipping paint, and cracks in weathered or statues that have been broken . Resin, plaster, marble, concrete, wood, and stone statues are carefully re-worked in our shop so that in most cases they will appear as original, and often are reinforced to be stronger than before.

This week we will be featuring two more blogs on statues we have repaired and refinished, so stay tuned!
