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!

The material’s we used include, stainless steel, wood, polystyrene, fibreglass, polished acrylic, water based spray paint, aluminium, weight support and vinyl for the label.

Dr Seuss car in the making

Dr Seuss  car

We were commissioned by Discover story centre in London  to transform an adult tricycle in to the fun and interactive Dr Seuss car  from his book The cat in the hat. Discover supplied us with the adult tricycle ready to transform. The main body of the car  was carved from EPS, made in 2 sections, coated with fr polyurea which is water + impact resistant and spray painted to required colour. The cars  various components were created using a combination  of materials and a variety of techniques such as carving, welding, spray painting, coating to achieve final interactive and fun result!  When  transforming the bike we had to keep as close as possible to the original concept of the Dr Seuss illustration whilst making sure it would be durable and practical.  The car  is fully usable and the main body is removable for ease  of transport etc. We cant wait to see the fun bike  in action at events,  It will be amazing to see the dr Seuss bike out and about making people smile!

Giant dinner plates!

See how we created these giant Dinner plates!

We were commissioned by Juergen Teller Ltd to create two of  1.20m in diameter size dinner plates with HQ images applied onto each plate. To create the plates we first made a mould. From this we created the plates with fibre glass. Once the plates were  smooth we applied a base coat and topcoat spray paint with a high gloss white finish. Once completely dry we vinyl wrapped the plates with the required  HQ  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!

Glastonbury charging bull

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

 

Check out one of our recent projects!

We created a giant bull which was used as EE’s charging bull at Glastonbury 2015!

We were commissioned by Presentation Design Services to create the bull. The sculpture had to be water- proof, extremely durable and friendly looking. We worked closely together with PDS  according to their details to create the right bull they envisioned to be the EE Charging Bull at world famous music and contemporary performing arts festival Glastonbury.
The bull was hand carved out of high density polystyrene. Steel rods inserted within the tail  for extra strength and timber blocks within hoofs for installation system. As the sculpture had to be weather proof we applied flexible coating polyurea and primered in order to prepare for a paintable surface.
Final finish was completed by PDS to  their clients  specification.
We are very proud to have completed this project at a very tight time schedule and have completed within a week! Just in  time for our client  to apply final finish.

Outdoor advertising can be fun!

Outdoor advertising tool - giant hand

Outdoor advertising tool – giant hand

 

Recently we have created a great ‘artvertising’ tool measuring at 5m in length!

The idea behind the concept was to create a giant surreal item and to combine advertising in a unique and fun way.

The giant hand had to be proportional! whilst being weather proof and most importantly safely installed  on to our 6m trailer.

Hand carved, coated with polyurea and airbrushed to create a realistic effect.

What ever you wish to publicize, spread the word for your event, raise awareness with our giant hand you will be sure to be noticed and to not be forgotten. Create a great talking point and advertise with us. For more details and to book get in touch info@icacreation.co.uk
