Gargoyle sculpture

We worked with Studio  Tac to create the unique  sculpture to be used as a feature element for the touring Gorillaz band

The sculpture was hand carved based form various image references supplied to us by Studio Tac together with some creative freedom to sculpt.

We used high density PU foam to carve as this allows for more in depth detail for the sculpture measuring at 800mm high inc base.

The sculpture was then coated with FR polyurea in order to create a water and impact resistant surface. Once coated the sculpture was spray painted and decorated ready to go on tour! We also created a custom case for the sculpture to keep it stored safely + practical  transport. Have a look below at some images!


Splash of colour to your spring 2016!

With our days filling up with sunshine in beautiful Cornwall we can feel the  spring fast approaching!

Spring is a wonderful sense of beginning of nature blossoming, and as the weather gets warmer we all look forward to new sensations with vibrant colours, that’s  why we wanted to share with you some of our colourful projects which we have been lucky enough to create!

We spray paint with high quality lacquers, we also use  the airbrush technique for more detailed pieces.

We can achieve a range of finishes and textures including smooth, matt, high gloss and when required a rough texture as realistic as possible.We can spray paint with metallic paint + clear coat for an extra shine, we  use Pantone, RAL and metallic colour numbers  to our clients spec for great results, the paints we use are weather proof and are made to last.

So whether a project requires a classic one colour  finish or contemporary /  smooth and glossy or just bursting with colours with high detail, we love to make that happen in the best way possible for a great visual impact with quality results.

We are always happy to advise  on the most practical options.

We are currently in the process of testing with our paint supplier for a range of water based colours and soon will introduce this option to our clients  as  still a durable option but more environmental friendly.

Have a look at some images of our projects which include props, sculptures, special display, art installations and experimental marketing elements! Enjoy the colours!

Are you planning ahead for the festive season?


We are already taking bookings to create bespoke themed  props for Christmas 2015
We work with a combination of materials such as wood, polystyrene, aluminium, polyurea coating to make props water proof to achieve the desired result which will match the purpose of the event.
All our props are hand carved / crafted and are spray painted + airbrushed with the colors of our clients choice for the ultimate detailed and unique effect.
Why go with the mass produced market, when you wish to create a spectacular setting?
Our clients have full control of their prop / bespoke elements as we keep them updated with images of each step during production from start to finish.

We had a great time being  involved in Truro’s play  fest 2015 (part of National Playday) held at Boscawen park Truro.

The Event was hosted and organized  by Kernow live with support from Swamp Circus

The 2 day fun festival featured many fun activities ranging from  bouncy castles, art & craft workshops,  face painting  &  a variety of entertainment with  live music from a children band, dance groups, circus performers,  along with lost  of fun across the green Zone.

We displayed some of our surreal scaled up props as a fun photo opportunity for people of all ages and  families attending.

Despite the cloudy first day it was a good turnout. The second day was filled with sunshine and a great atmosphere through out.

The fun and creative event was a great  success, it is thought that around 5,000 people attended the attraction at Boscawen park Truro Cornwall.

 

 

 


Our giant trainer at Race for Life 2015

Our giant trainer at Race for life campaign

It was great to have been involved at Race for life 2015!
Cancer re-search used our giant trainer as an eye catching prop to help raise awareness of Race for life events amongst women of all ages. You can also help this wonderful cause by keeping fit to help raise the much needed funds for Cancer re-search UK.

Kind words  from: Nicola Doherty  Cancer Research UK

 

I just wanted to Thank You greatly for the use of the trainer, as I mentioned it has really helped us recruit our target of 63,000 women in the region to take part in Race for Life which helps raise £3m for Cancer Research UK. The trainer brought a lot of delight to young and old alike when we were out on the streets of Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire. We used it every week and we would love to work with ICA Creation again in the future!

Elsa from Frozen, scaled up model in the making!

Check out images of how we  scaled up a miniature  version of Elsa, to create a life size model measuring at 1.50m in height!

First step was to accurately measure the miniature model. We cut the main shape out of High density polystyrene. We carved the model according to images + miniature model. We positioned her head more up right in order to create better photo opportunity for the future.

Because of her posture, we fitted a stainless steel pin in to her arm. After sanding all imperfections, we spray applied FR hard coating polyurethane. This high tech application will ensure the model will be durable and waterproof.

As we felt that her hand was slightly too big and bulky after hard coating, we made some modifications to her hand. We scaled the hand down, fitted a stainless steel pin in her finger to give strength to the more delicate looking hand!

The next stage, painting and airbrush decoration!

After sanding the model for a smooth texture, we painted and airbrushed the model with HQ 2K Paints. Added some shading to her hair to give it some more depth and texture. We also lightly airbrushed her skin, to make her look more natural!
