About Cow Parade miniature cow fabrication process
Every six months CowParade team selects some new cows that appeared in an event somewhere around the world. Those selected become part of the CowParade herd of collectibles. This miniature cow is now one of CowParade 500 molds.
Firstly, the design team carefully models 3D clay statues using photographs of selected cows to ensure every detail is well-presented. The clay models are then used to create a production mold for each miniature cow.
Then, the molds produce clean, white Cowparade cows. A final sand-papering and dusting and the white models are ready for painting. A majority or cows are carefully hand-painted.
After the painting step, cows need a few days to dry before placing them into a low-temperature oven. Most of the time a lacquer is applied to protect the model in transit. The cow figurine is now ready to find a new and happy owner.
