3m headphones in the making!

3m high headphones replica in the making!
We were commissioned by Phonaudio who create luxury headphones with maximum comfort & the ultimate sound experience to create 3m high replica of the phonaudio headphones. We used a combination of materials to achieve a realistic and durable giant version of the head phones. Materials we used to create include, exterior ply wood, EPS, aluminium, soft foam, up holstered pu leather, fr coating polyurea all finished to a high spec. The head phones will be used as special display with a wow factor   at phonaudio’s events, music festivals.

Take a look at images during production, completion and in action at OnBlackheath festival London!


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!

Have a look at some images of process and completion!

 

 

 

 


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.

We created realistic trees!

Show casing our latest project! 

We were commissioned by Presentation Design Services to create artificial trees for the Virgin Holiday’s African themed tree house installation in London’s Southwark. The installation was in place for one week in January 2016.

We created 4 large tree trunks and several branches for the top section of the tree house.

The trees had to be realistic as possible and had  to represent  real African trees with no tree bark.

The main shape was carved from polystyrene and the texture applied was from a mould taken from real tree trunks which ensured we gained realistic visual results. We coated the trees with flexible hard coating polyurea for durability and to make the trees water proof.

We first applied primer then top coat and paint decoration with water based paints as realistic effect as possible.

The project was achieved at an extremely short time scale, we were ready for delivery within 3 weeks!

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.

Fun at Play Fest 2015

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.

 

 

 


Glastonbury charging bull

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.

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!
