Dragon props

We loved working with INCA productions for these custom themed elements.We created a large Dragons egg custom DJ booth, various smaller eggs & a dragon with red eyes. All elements were hand carved, coated with FR polyurea, primed and spray painted / decorated.The custom props were used at an exclusive  Halloween event Annabelle’s in Mayfair London.

Take a look at some pictures of this project. We are truly thankful to our amazing team and suppliers  for helping us make this happen!

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.

2018 creative custom props

Creative 2018!

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

Props for events

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!

Why is FR polyurea coating great for props?

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!
