XENOSTONE™ ABOUT US

We are real people with a real mission to bring a brand new craft material to the market using an old fashioned philosophy of "Let the Product Sell Itself!" using word of mouth.

After many years of working with molds for casting materials and making craft items that we sell on the Internet, it became obvious that there was a real need for a material that could meet the needs of artist and craftsman alike that would withstand the extremes of weather, water exposure, fire exposure, and be easy to use and versatile to make countless items with. Something that could be used by craftsmen, but could also be used to do small production with by family owned businesses.

We have a large amount of experience in using just about every craft material that exist over the years, and each material had it's advantages and disadvantages.

Plaster and concrete products are great for casting into molds and making art with, but plaster does not stand up to the elements well and concrete takes a long time to cure out and is not very strong or practical for making small items with.

Normal Ceramics are great for making a large amount of things with, but it requires an investment into expensive plaster molds, a kiln to fire them, and a lot of experience to make larger castings. The size and scope of working in ceramics makes it less friendly than other craft projects for most people. Making your own plaster molds for normal ceramics is not an easy task even for the experienced mold maker and requires a lot of training and special tools to do.

XENOSTONE™ combines the ease of casting like that of plaster and concrete but has the added advantages of being like a very fine hard ceramic material once it sets. It sets quickly once mixed with water so no special chemicals or other toxins are needed to work with it. Anything from simple plastic molds to complex silicone molds can be used to cast XENOSTONE™ or it can be mixed thicker by using less water and applying it to armatures to create anything from small sculptures to extremely large sculptures with.

We were so excited to be able to bring this new Cold Set Ceramic to the craft and art world!

After doing hundreds of experiments and testing possible formulas, we also finally landed on a new formula that allows a casting to be laser marked with designs. Not just simply engraved, or using special coatings and other chemicals, but actually being able to print on the castings right out of the molds using a laser machine. The possibilities are endless with this new technology!

XENOSTONE™ is truly a new Space Age material for a new world.

This is the American dream come true for our small family business. Working long hours in our small shop and spending time inventing and doing art projects and mold making has finally allowed us to create something so new that we think it is going to rock the craft and art world!
