 Intricate Chinese dragons – TR2 Theatre Royal Plymouth

We were commissioned by TR2 to produce two  5m high dragons to use at a Theatre production. The focus point of this project was to achieve a detailed 3d effect with the depth of 15cm. Mounted on a  ply wood board, we applied high density polystyrene, sculpted proportionally according supplied design, we gave dragons depth and varied scales. The two dragons mirror each other. Coated with FR polyurethane. As a finish we spray painted the dragons with primer / basecoat.

Magical frame for giant clock  – TR2 Theatre Royal Plymouth

We were commissioned by TR2 to sculpt a magical scene for   a giant clock with the height of 2.40m use at a Theatre production. Mounted on a  ply wood board, we applied high density polystyrene, sculpted all of the magical elements, according to given design. The main brief of this project was to make the magical creatures come to life! We did this by setting a clear contrast  between the hardness of the books and the soft feel of the toys. After sculpting and preparation  we applied FR polyurethane hard coating. As a finish we spray painted the sculpture  with a primer / basecoat.

A take on the Rockefeller sculpture  – TR2 Theatre Royal Plymouth

We were commissioned by TR2 to sculpt  a detailed piece based on the Rockefeller sculpture in NY to use at a Theatre production. Mounted on a  ply wood board, we applied high density polystyrene, sculpted proportionally according to images of the sculpture. The focus point of this project was to achieve a 3d effect with the depth of 22cm. To get some movement within the sculpture was essential. We tried to capture the motions with the fabric and the contrast between the textures and smooth surfaces. After sculpting and preparation we applied FR polyurethane hard coating. As a finish we spray painted the sculpture  with a primer / basecoat.

Giant custom pipes – TR2 Theatre Royal Plymouth

We worked with TR2 to create the giant pipes. The largest pipe is 4.5m long.

Working towards precise measurements, a combination of materials were used to achieve the project such as eps, ply, steel and coating.  The pipes were carved from polystyrene, detailed sections fitted. The pipes were then prepared for coating application which includes sanding / filling  all the gaps for smoothing out the surface.

Once prepared  the custom pies were coated with Fr polyurea which is water proof and impact resistant. The project was primed and ready for decoration by TR2.
