Polyresin is an affordable and durable material used in creating a number of home decor accents all the way from a decorative vase to outdoor garden statuary. Manufacturers and artist alike are now using polyresin when producing home decor accessories as well as many other items because it is so affordable and durable. Although it is a durable product and is now being used by manufactures to create many items for the home that in the past were made of tempered glass or ceramic materials, which can easily be broken, polyresin is not indestructible. Home decor accent made of polyresin may not be as fragile as the ones made of glass or ceramics but if repeatedly dropped or mishandled items such as a vase or statue made of polyresin can still be broken.
Along with being durable and affordable, polyresin is also very pliable when heated making it a great medium used by manufacturers and artist when casting items in a mold such as a decorative vase, trinket box, sculpture, candle holder, table lamp, or even garden statuary. Another reason polyresin is so widely used for casting items in a mold is because of the fine delicate details that can be achieved such as intricate scroll work on a decorative trinket box or the minute details on the face of a sculpture.
Because polyresin accepts paint very well, after a home decor item is molded and set, it is generally painted using multiple techniques creating beautifully finished quality products for the home. Manufacturers can also add materials like ground stone and metal flakes to the polyresin mix before casting a mold allowing for diversity in styles and finishes. Adding ground stone to the mix is a technique widely used when creating garden statuary and outdoor planters. Although an obvious choice for making outdoor garden accessories, this technique is also used when producing indoor home accents as well, such as a decorative vase or candle holder.
Today you will find home decor accents made of polyresin in a variety of styles and finishes in just about any home or home store whether it be a traditional brick and mortar store front or an online home decor store. Overall, because polyresin is an affordable and durable medium great for producing items using a mold, it is used by manufacturers as well as artists in many different forms when creating a multitude of quality products and accents for the home inside and out.
