  • Creating a shih tzu sculpture

    • Are my pictures good enough?

      We are usually able to create a good pet memorial even with very few images. For example, we created a dog memorial for a customer who only had two photos. In that case, we sent images of the model to the customer, to make sure that the figurine we made was the dog he remembered. If you are not sure if the pictures are good enough, you can always contact us and give us the photos first. We can look at them and tell you if we believe we can do a good job. But do not worry, if you order a pet statue and upload pictures, but we do not think we can do it, we will let you know and refund the money.
      Just select 5-10 photos from your mobile or PC (or as many as you can if you don't have five of them), and email them to us. Don’t worry if they are not all perfect, we will let you know if we need more.

    • Cold cast bronze shih tzu sculptures vs full colour stone

      Traditionally, you needed to employ an expensive artist, if you wanted a true likeness of your shih tzu. The artist would usually create a cold cast bronze sculpture of your shih tzu. Depending on the artist, the bronze shih tzu might look exactly like yours, or be a very artistic interpretation. Regardless of how it looked, it would be very expensive.
      Arty Lobster believes that it is not necessary to pay many thousands of pounds for an excellent personalised shih tzu sculpture. By using 3D printing, we are able to simplify the process and make what was once only possible for extremely rich people, accessible to everyone. We create sculptures in two ways:

      • Full colour sandstone with a brass base - This brings out the colours and personality of your shih tzu, and is what most customers prefer
      • Bronze shih tzu sculpture - We can create a bronze sculpture, using 3D printing, at a fraction of the cost of traditional artists. This sculpture will have a more traditional look and feel, but not show off the colour variation in the coat
    • Shih tzu ornaments

      An Arty Lobster ornament is perfect for the mantelpiece or desk, but too heavy to use as a Christmas ornament or hang on a Christmas tree. Our shih tzu ornament is made for standing on a flat surface.
      Arty Lobster's shih tzu ornaments are created in full colour, and the colour is part of our computer model. We then use novel full-colour 3D printing to make a sandstone ornament with all the colours of the fur and coat. Our ornaments are not hand-painted.

    • Can you do different shih tzus and crosses?

      As Arty Lobster makes figurines from your photos, we are happy to make any kind of shih tzu or pet, even crosses and pets with no discernible breeds.

      We have made a number of shih tzus. If you can get us the photos, we are confident that we can make it.

  • FAQ

    • How many pictures do I need?

      If possible, we prefer 10 photos of your pet. Ideally, we like photos from the front, back, sides and a few of the face. However, if you don't have many photos, we are able to make a sculpture with less. If in doubt, just email us the pictures and we will let you know.

    • Why use 3D printing?

      By using a new technology, full-colour 3D printing, we can create sculptures with very high quality. We do not rely on hand-painting by badly treated workers far away, but use the newest technology to do this instead. The result to you is a sculpture that is perfectly lifelike with exactly the right colours.
