So excited to share with you one of our latest creations!
We created a bright red crystal-like outdoor light up seat for a beautiful garden in Cornwall The contemporary seat is suitable for both for exterior & interior design We can create the shape / size and colour required. The crucial aspect of this project was to have a seamless finish with internal led lighting.
2018 has been a great year for us at ICA Creation!
This year has been both innovative & productive. Especially with the new facilities we have in house with CNC routing this has enabled extreme precision and speed.
Take a look at the diverse creative projects we have had the pleasure to work on
We started 2018 with a project which is both imaginative and inspiring.
We created Winnie the pooh themed elements for Disney’s family rooms at the Westfield shopping centre. The main focus of this project was to be as true to concept as possible whilst being practical and extremely durable.
Take a look at some images of this project we loved working on. In total we created bespoke elements for 3 rooms
With our new CNC facilities, we are able to create large letters and 3d logos & custom panels.
Take a look at the variety of projects which have been made possible with the CNC router.
As well as cutting we can prepare a design file for the CNC router
Autumn of 2018 brought an exciting project of Creating a 5m in diameter PACMAN exhibition stand for Namco Bandai which was exhibited at the brand licencing Europe 2018 in London’s Olympia exhibition centre
PAC-MAN – Custom exhibition stand
We also created elements for DaVinci’s gourmet ‘s exhibition stand. We created a pouring liquid effect of their sauce.
Scaled up 3d replicas!
This year we created a variety of exciting props!
A 1.20m high replica of a holesaw to use at the manufacturer’s exhibition
Large trainer props to help raise awareness, a sparkly red and gold top hat to be used as a prop alongside a performance. We worked with a school to create an artificial Wisteria tree to help create an inspiring space in their library.
Custom top hat prop we created
800mm high Holesaw!
We started the Winter 2018 in a great way, creating some festive props such as the red and gold sleigh, we also had the pleasure of creating the amazing characters Shrek & Donkey to be used at creative displays.
Props are a great way to create a wow factor at an event & make it memorable!
We can create custom props, sculptures, CNC cut large letters & logos with the right colours and shapes to amplify your branding in a positive way!
The custom props add an excitement element to an event that create a perfect photo opportunity for all attending which is great for social media marketing at it’s best and with ease. In effect the prop can be a great tool to gain positive visual impact and create a talking point for your business or organisation. Especially because of the approach & a much more fun way of engaging with people + media.
The props we create and are great for indoors and out door events once coated with fr polyurea which is both a water / impact resistant coating.
With the large letters and 3d logos as well as cutting them out, coating and spray painting we can prepare the design file to cut out with our in house CNC facilities.
Take a look at some of the key props we have created for our clients which have made a positive impact at their event venues!
There are many techniques we use to achieve our creative projects & props.
One of the main techniques and products we use to create our props, sculptures, 3d logos & large letters is waterproof + extremely durable coating application of Polyurea which is a high quality rubber material
How do we apply it?
Polyurea is a manually spray applied coating using a high-pressure system with our specialist coating machine.
The amount of layers applied will depend on thickness required.
Most often we coat on to sculptures, shapes and letters carved or CNC cut from polystyrene.
Is Prep still necessary ?
Just like anything for good results prep is crucial, sanding the surface, making sure no moisture is important.
Advantages of polyurea application?
Speed is the major advantage of this coating, after spray application the coating is dry within seconds!
Depending on how smooth you would like the finish to be there may be some sanding prep work prior to primer application.
Once primed and fully dry the project is ready to spray paint!
This FR coating we use is both water & impact resistant which is perfect for the props durability and practicality.
Especially if you are looking for your props to be long lasting and suitable for both indoors and outdoors.
Take a look at some of our props where polyurea has been a major factor in getting it right!
Creating themed props true to concept is something we passionately do.
We have created themed props for several public interior spaces take a look below to see a couple of spaces we have helped transform:
Westfield shopping centre:The brief was to create Winnie the pooh elements for the family rooms for Westfield shopping centre which had to be true to concept as possible, durable + impact resistant. All bespoke elements were hand decorated. The wooden effect items had to be splinter free, to look like authentic rustic timber yet not as heavy as real wood. We created various trees for each room, wooden effect log seats, ipad logs, pumpkins, rustic timber replica fencing, gate, frames, flowers.
Discover story centre:This was a great project to work on. Each element had to be as close as possible from illustrations from Dr Seuss which isn’t always the easiest task however we loved the challenge and also client was very happy with the out-come.
Discover story centre ignites the imagination which is captured within a book.
We created a cave like tunnel, Truffula trees, various colourful trees, a sofa and a dr Seuss themed car. All props are coated with FR polyurea which is both a water and impact resistant coating.
Cadbury world Café: We created white fluffy clouds and bespoke cladding for the Café’s make over.
Each cloud had to be slightly different in shape in order to create a realistic effect.
All clouds include an internal fixing system in order to either suspend or fix to the ceiling.
Both cloud and cladding elements were coated with FR polyurethane & spray painted white
Take a look at some of our recent projects, with our CNC router we have the capability of cutting out large 3d letters, numbers & logos for events.
We can cut them out from polystyrene, foam or even ply wood,
The letters are suitable for indoors & out door events once they are coated with FR polyurea which is water + impact resistant. The CNC router allows for precision & time saving manufacturing.
Take a look at some of our projects. The latest large letters we created for Stirling universities graduation events.
The large letters are a great feature for events, promotions product launches, great 3d signage or simply to raise awareness.
As well as cutting and full production we are able to prepare design file for the cutting.
