Chinese Lantern Drawing


Draw a top view and side view based on the appearance of the product. We will draw product graphics on the ground with the ratio of 1:1 according to the drawings. And then we will make the frame with the iron.


After making the frame we should test the products to ensure each action can be normal operated. It usually need about half a day.

After confirming that the inner frame has no problem, the high-density sponge should be placed on the outside of the frame. The sponge with higher density should be wrapped in which the range of motion is relatively large to prevent the sponge from breaking. The sponge should be bonded with adhesive. And then, further shaping to perfect details with designer knife according to drawing.

Sticking teeth

The teeth can be made of fiberglass, silicone or wood. It's time consuming to use wood, so we do not use it now.


After the product is completed, we should re-test the products for about 1 day and we need to check whether we should do complementary treatment.


First, the goods should have a simple packing and then packaged according to the requirements of the guests with wooden packing (the most commonly used) or air box packing (the product only needs simple packing if it will be shipped by container)..
