The XENOSTONE™ Gallery

Welcome to our gallery. As our projects grow, so will our gallery.

This is just the beginning of what's to come, so please come back often
to see what's new!

This stone was cast from our new XENOSTONE-L™ formula so we could laser mark the sabertooth cat and name onto the stone.

The stone on the left was cast in a silicone mold taken from a stone model made from Sculpey® Clay. The stone needed to be a specific size and thickness or we could have used any small flat stone to make the mold for this project.

This stone was cast from our new XENOSTONE-L™ formula so we could laser mark the sabertooth cat and name onto the stone. We used CorelDRAW® to do the artwork in black and white so the laser would recognize the color to mark on the XENOSTONE-L™ cast stone.

This is the first of many designs for this particular stone casting shape for a new product line and web site called Stone Age Pets that will be used to help raise money for animal shelters and wild animal rescue organizations.

XENOSTONE ornament casting finished in metalic rub on colors.

This Greenman was cast from XENOSTONE™ in a chocolate mold we made. Once it had set up we simply applied a silver coat to the casting with our finger and then after that had dried, did the same with a gold color just on the raised parts of the casting. The natural mottled brown of the XENOSTONE™ casting and the applied metal colors made this piece look like an antique metal casting.

This is going to be fantastic for doing drawer and cabinet hardware and for doing Steam Punk type items and Steam Punk Jewelry pieces.

This will also be perfect for doing furniture pieces as accents for tables, chairs, desk, light switches and outlet covers, and all kinds of other applications.

This special Halo Master Chief helmet image and user ID were made as a special custom gift for one of our employee's to be given as a birthday gift.

This special Halo Master Chief helmet image and user ID were made as a special custom gift for one of our employee's to be given as a birthday gift. The tile size is 3.5 inches square by 1/2 inch thick with a cork back applied so it can be used as a coaster or a paper weight.

This is a tile that was made using our XENOSTONE-L™ material and laser marked with the design. The color of the tile material was changed to a tan color using a small amount of tan iron oxide coloring.

The tile was bedded on a black felt pillow and put in a stationary box with a clear plastic lid and a silver stretch band to finish it off for the gift.

Iron gate concept with XENOSTONE inserts

The iron gate concept art to the left was done to show what would be possible to incorporate XENOSTONE™ castings as accents into what would otherwise be a simple iron gate. Since castings can be repeated, it would be great to accent an iron fence to match the gates and also add accents and other decor to support post and other features.

XENOSTONE™ makes it possible to create this type of design for outdoor use and could also be used around swimming pools, doorways, stair balusters, wall dividers, and much more. If accents were ever broken or vandalized, they could be easily replaced as long as the molds that made the castings were still available.

XENOSTONE POTROCK a Patented item made by one of our XENOSTONE users.

This XENOSTONE™ casting is a patented product made by one of our customers called a Pot Rock™ They are designed to be placed in the bottom of a pot before putting in the potting soil to help with drainage and healthy root growth.

The molds for each of the three sizes of this product were made from silicone and are all one piece molded items. Silicone molds work exceptionally well for casting XENOSTONE™ items in especially if they have undercuts and other difficult to mold shaping to them. The original models were hand shaped and sized for their purpose using Sculpey® Clay. The XENOSTONE™ castings will last for many hundreds of years.

The next three photos are taken of a tile that was cast from XENOSTONE™ in plastic molds supplied by Mold Warehouse.

The next three photos are taken of a tile that was cast from XENOSTONE™ in plastic molds we made. The tile was removed from the mold in less than an hour. After about one hour we took the stone out into the parking lot and had one of the other business owners in our complex that owned a full size truck drive up onto the tile to see if it would withstand that much weight after having been just freshly cast.

As you can see by the photo, the tile did not crush. This is the same tile in the pictures below.

About three hours after the tile was cast, and having already been parked on by a full sized truck, we asked a FedEx driver that was making a delivery with a big heavy truck to drive up onto the tile

About three hours after the tile was cast, and having already been parked on by a full sized truck, we asked a FedEx driver that was making a delivery with a big heavy truck to drive up onto the tile when he parked to unload. As you can see, even with the weight of a much larger and heavier truck, the tile survived the massive weight without so much as a crack or any other signs of damage.

After the driver pulled off the stone, he also drove over it without stopping with his duel back tires.

As you can see, there is no damage to the XENOSTONE™ tile and no cracks or even so much as a chip.

I don't know of any product with the exception of some cast plastics that can do what this cast ceramic stone is capable of after just coming out of the mold. And to top it off, all that is used to make the castings is carefully measured water to XENOSTONE™ so there are no toxic resins involved, or ovens for baking or heating. This demonstration was done straight out of the plastic mold.

This does not mean the tiles or castings are indestructible, it just shows what kind of compression strength the material is capable of withstanding. By the way, we tried to break the tile after it was parked and driven on by using our hands, just in case there may have been hidden cracking internally, but were unable to do so. We are fairly husky guys, and did put some effort into trying to break it by hand. This tile was then passed out as a sample to a customer.
