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

We also created elements for DaVinci’s gourmet ‘s exhibition stand. We created a pouring liquid effect of their sauce.

This year we created a variety of exciting props!

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.
For some it may seem odd to think about Christmas in this hot July 2018!
However, when planning a spectacular Christmas event which promises to be magical it is never to early to plan ahead!
Take a look at our most popular and in demand Christmas prop is Santa’s sleigh which is our original design and made in Cornwall – UK
How do we create it?
We use our CNC router to cut out the sections with precision from exterior ply wood, then we construct it by hand.
Once Santa’s sleigh is constructed, we use primer followed by spray paints with our clients choice of colours using high quality paints that last, which enables the finishing touches to be custom.

As we approach Christmas 2017 closer each day and this time it’s flying! We would like to share some of the recent and previous Christmas props and special displays we have created.
There’s nothing like a beautiful magical setting that can give the festive feeling and take our breath away that brings wonder back to Christmas.
We have been very fortunate to be a part of some amazing displays or have had the pleasure or creating some key props to generate a festive feeling and most of all helped create some magical photo opportunities.
Take a look below at some of the Christmassy props we have created!
We look forward to producing many more whether it be custom and personal or some of our popular props such as Santa’s Sleigh!
In the mean time we wish everyone a wonderful Christmas filled with warmth and joy!

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.
Have a look at some of the bespoke props we have created for events and the festive season to add a special sparkle to make your event memorable & magical.
Maybe for some people the mention of Christmas in August is too early!
But for event organizers for attractions and great organizations holding a Christmas party, for people who simply love everything about Christmas it is possibly never too early!
That’s why we are writing this blog in the summer( although it’s becoming quite cold! ) to share with you the bespoke creations we custom-made for our client during the last festive season.
We made the props to be used at Retallack Resort & Spas Winter Wonderland here in stunning Cornwall.
The brief was to make props which will help create a magical setting, but they also had to be user-friendly and by this we mean durable, friendly looking, plenty of contact with the Winter wonderland guests and children and great for a photo opportunity.
Because after all Christmas is about the children in all of us! So the items we made couldn’t be too fragile to touch or be closed off. They had to be fun, unique and made to last.
So what did we make?
We made some playful penguins, different sized snowmen which looked like the sweetest snowmen family in town! A giant stack of presents and we made the all important sleigh for Santa as he had to fly down to the winter wonderland to give presents to all of the children, who couldn’t wait to see him + we know he was the real Santa because we also visited and our youngest 4-year-old daughter said so!
