We accept casting projects as time allows, and you are welcome to inquire. A casting inquiry form is provided for your convenience.
We provide rotocasting for production of hollow models, in addition to pressure casting for solid models.
Seunta maintains high regard for any art created by an artist. It is an honor to be trusted to handle any original work. The artist retains all rights to any original work and any copy that is made. Seunta has never, and does not ever, use someone else’s mold, or work, or model copies, for anything other than the production requested by the artist.
The artist also retains full control over production at all times. Instructions are followed and respected.
Seunta maintains an online store. We have purchased the rights to reproduce, revise and sell these models. The models used for this production were commissioned specifically for this purpose. Any model ever sold by Seunta has fully documented, written consent from an artist that has been well compensated. Production for Seunta and production for artist casting services are two separate divisions and are not located in the same area of the shop.
We cast each model horse that is sold, on location, at Seunta LLC. This assures hands-on quality control and allows us to provide direct customer service. No short-cuts are used in bringing you top quality model horses for the best possible value! Each model horse is hollow cast using rotational casting technology and stainless steel wire reinforcement. When producing resin model horses we use standard industry materials for mold making and casting. Bright white polyurethane, Smooth Cast 300, is the most common material we use although other resins may be used when producing colored horses or animals.
Sculptures must be original creations. Seunta will not reproduce any model that has a Breyer horse, Stone model horse, or resin model authored by someone else within any part of a sculpture. This includes using someone else's creation as armature. It does not matter what percentage of the model has been changed, it does not matter if it can be considered a new creation due to extreme changes. Collaborations between several artists, or customization of a Breyer or Stone Horse, may be acceptable with necessary written permissions of the original author or owner being granted for reproduction.
Written contracts are available upon request.
Seunta no longer accepts barter arrangements, but may offer discounts on the molding cost. Due to the heavy investment by us, part of the barter arrangement included exclusivity to Seunta but that is also discontinued. Seunta does not ever handle any money for the artist and contact with the customer is limited to shipping. Several years ago, we offered barter arrangements to help new artists that came to us requesting the service, but there was always some confusion (most likely due to a language barrier). The artist needs to retain all rights to their work.
Our techniques provide a very clean face for the model as we mold the head without any seam line. With our customized mold injection built in to the mother shell, our pouring technique does not require a pour spout therefore there is no sprue to cut off of the model and the model is produced free of that possible blemish.
We take extra care to provide customers with models that do not have unsightly shadings from leg wires or wire breaking through the surface of the resin. While some of this may not make a difference in a model that is going to be painted immediately, many collectors will have their model on a shelf for a very long time before they are painted. Our goal is to provide a beautiful model straight from the caster and not necessarily just a blank canvas.
We use industry standard materials and are partnered with a very active supplier in Atlanta, GA. that has a high level of turnover for their products, assuring that we are able to get fresh materials at any time.
