My sculpture has a few imperfections and I feel worried.
As all Gillie and Marc artworks are hand-crafted, each piece is unique in its own right. That means that there might be a few bits that don’t necessarily look exactly the same as they did in the picture. This just shows that this is not mass-produced and instead, made with love. That’s what makes these works so beautiful and special!
Why can I hear something rattling inside my bronze sculpture?
The ‘rattling’ is just from some loose bronze that has got stuck during the creating process. This is completely normal and doesn't affect the integrity of the sculpture.
My Resin/Fibreglass sculpture has been damaged at home and a piece has broken off. What do I do?
The only way to repair resin is using a Megapoxy adhesive. This does a good job of fixing broken fibreglass sculptures. For smaller surfaces, super glue is very effective. If the breaks are clean they can be re-attached rather seamlessly, nobody will know! If need be you can then touch it up with a small amount of high gloss enamel paint.
There seems to be a lot of packaging used to ship my sculpture. Is this necessary?
We spend a lot of time packaging to ensure your artwork gets to you in one piece. We need to cushion it well with lots of packaging materials otherwise it can get damaged in the postal process. If you cannot re-use the packaging that ensured the safety of your sculpture, you are more than welcome to send the packaging back for us to reuse. We are always looking for ways to improve our environmental impact and packaging is one area where we are looking for solutions to improve.
What is a limited edition artwork?
This means the artwork has been created in limited quantities. The amount that is shown under ‘edition number’ is the total that can ever be created. For example, if the number is 50, only 50 of that piece of art will ever be out in the world. This gives the artwork more value.
Does my artwork come with a certificate of authenticity?
All artworks that are a limited edition come with a certificate of authenticity that is dated, signed and has Gillie and Marc’s seal of approval.

How to care for your gold leaf
Gold leaf is gold that has been hammered and flattened to make a thin, delicate foil. Due to the delicate nature of this material, gold leaf must be carefully handled. When installing your gold leaf painting you must wear plain cotton gloves to avoid transferring fingerprints or scratches onto the surface.
There are fingerprints on my gold leaf, what can I do?
The best method to remove fingerprint stains from delicate gold leaf is with a very soft bristled kabuki make up brush. Gently brush the mark with a soft swirling motion and gradually you will see the stain dissipate.
How do I look after my painting?
Place the painting in a location with a consistent temperature and ensure it isn’t positioned too closely to lighting. Use LED lights if you can—they do not produce heat or UV rays. If handling the artwork, hold it from the edge, hanging wire, or stretch‑bar and wear gloves. Use a microfiber cloth, not solvents, to lightly dust the painting.
What are the Dogman and Rabbitwoman characters inspired by?
Gillie and Marc are best known for their beloved characters, Rabbitwoman and Dogman, who tell the autobiographical tale of two opposites coming together to become best friends and soulmates. As unlikely animal kingdom companions, the Rabbit and Dog stand for diversity and acceptance through love.
