Large make up props – Elle Weekender

We loved working with Westfield & DZA Technical  to create the custom make up elements for their Elle Weekender events at Westfield shopping centres in London.
We created 2 larger then life lipstick clusters with an array of beautiful pantone  pinks and deeps reds  with a variety of sizes and a soft seating space for the perfect photo opportunity.  We also created large make up elements to be installed on to Ferris wheels  as a part of their fun make up fair concept. We used a variety of materials to achieve the project including birch ply, aluminium, EPS, Fr coating, all spray painted & decorated to the vibrant & authentic colours.

Take a look at the project below, our workshop turned into make up heaven!


CNC Routing in Cornwall & nation wide

Hope you’ve  had a great start to your week, cant believe schools are out ( or almost )  & we are approaching the end of July 2019!

I wanted  share some projects with you that  have been achievable with our CNC router since last summer

As well as working on our own projects  with CNC we also offer CNC routing  in Cornwall & nation wide

Which materials can we cut?

The materials we can cut are MDF, Plywood, Hardwood, Melamine Laminates, Solid Surface Materials, Foam core, Corrugated Plastic, Dibond, Aluminium / Soft Metals with a working area of 1300mm by 2500mm
Resolution Accuracy: 0.01mm/100mm.
Design file for cutting: We can also prepare design files for the cutting which gives our customers more possibilities and an easier route in to getting the project done. These are the supported file formats if you can provide design file DWG, DXF, EPS, AI, PDF, BMP, JPG, TIF, GI

What can we achieve, create & cut with CNC?
We can create custom panels, new patterns, bespoke signage, cut out large letters, 3d logos, elements for furniture, pre-cut the elements for our products such as the Christmas sleigh.

We can create large 3d letters suitable for both indoors & out doors. The materials used usually depend on the requirements of the project.
We can also create a custom base for the large letters. The letters are cut with accuracy & speed with our CNC router.
We create letters for marketing. special display, all events such as product launches, graduation ceremonies, exhibitions, brand awareness, window display and theatre productions.

Realistic artificial trees

When our workshop turned in to the woods!

 

We created 7 realistic artificial trees in various sizes ranging from 2m to 5 m high.

It was a great pleasure to work with TR2 productions on this project.

We used a combination off materials to achieve the project such as: EPS, steel , FR coating polyurea which is both water & impact resistant high quality rubber

The realistic texture was a crucial factor for this project. Once texture was applied we painted / decorated the trees by hand.

Giant letters & logos

 

Take a look at some of the giant letters & logos we have created   for  events, brand awareness, exhibitions, festivals, public spaces & theatre productions  and more.

With our CNC router we can ensure speed and accuracy, we can prepare the design file for cutting for ease of production.

The letters and logos we create can be used  both indoors or outdoors depending  on the requirements.

For out-door events we advise to coat  with polyurea coating as this is both water and impact resistant rubber coating which is extremely durable.

We are proud of the high quality we can provide with quick turn around times.

To create the letters we usually need a DXF file of the letters or logo additionally  the pantone or ral colours required to spray paint with.

Props & 3d models for exhibitions

Why use props or 3d models for your exhibition?

We could also ask why blend in when you can stand out?

Creating a large 3d replica is a great visual way of presenting your product and at the same time engaging with clients and potential customers.

Your custom exhibition prop could be the one element which ties in together with your exhibition and to make it stand out thereby attracting more visitors.

3d replica’s and props are a great  photo opportunity for all,   which in result becomes positive social media engagement

Take a look below at some of the creative exhibition props we have had the pleasure to work on:

The main coating material we use is FR polyurea which is both water and impact resistant

Custom artificial trees

Artificial Wisteria tree

Artificial Wisteria tree

 

 

We love to help create an inspiring space.

 

We wanted to share with you a selection of artificial trees we have created, along with artificial tree trunks and branches.
Our focus is always to for the trees  to look as realistic as possible whilst splinter free &  durability to make the props last in the fun themed environment they will be installed at.
We have created artificial trees for a variety of purposes such as tree trunks for Virgin Holidays tree house, trees for each Winnie the pooh themed family room from the Westfield  shopping centre in London, for a school library, London’s Discover story centre.

It’s all about the texture  &  attention to detail!
The real like texture is crucial to giving best visual results. The main product we use is FR polyurea which is a high-quality rubber. This coating is both water and impact resistant and is simply made to last!
Leaves or flowers, each tree has it’s own individual characteristics, we always source the right products which will fit with the concept for  the best effect, look and feel.
Most of the props we work on need to be as close to illustration as possible, we work with our designers to make sure we can make it happen.
Not mass produced!
Each tree is unique and true to our client’s request. This means that only they will have that tree to suit their themed area. Also we spray paint and hand decorate the tree trunks and branches to give a realistic and organic look for the texture
Take a look at the range of artificial trees  we have created so far, we hope you enjoy!

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!
