Whale and snail rock – Discover story centre London
We worked with Discover story cenre in London to create these scenic elements for their whale and the snail themed interior space at the story centre.
Both whale and the snail rock had to be true to the original illustration as possible. Both elements were hand carved from polystyrene. Once approved by client coated with FR polyurea ( water and impact resistant coating ) we then primed both elements and applied the base colours to them. Take a look at images during production
It’s wonderful to see some of the elements we created in action in a beautiful setting brought to life by Discover Story centre in London. Take a look at some pictures below of the magical setting! Pictures below by Suzi Corker – Discover

Final decoration by Discover story centre London
It was great to work on an inspiring project brought by Discover London’s story centre
We were commissioned by Discover to create Dr Seuss themed elements.
The elements had to be as close as possible to the illustrations of the iconic DR Seuss, bright imaginative and quirky whilst being hardwearing + practical.
Have a look below to see what we created!
We created 4 colourful trees, each with an individual tree top shape. The trees were made from an internal aluminium structure for extra durability with an aluminium base. The outer material is polystyrene which was hand carved, coated with FR polyurea to ensure the trees are to be water proof + durable and impact resistant. All trees were then primed and spray painted with a top coat to required colour number.
The cave like tunnel!
We created the tunnel to fit perfectly the interior space of the story centre.
The tunnel had to be made in several sections as it had to fit through a standard size entrance.
The tunnel was hand carved out of EPS, coated with FR polyurea, primed , spray painted and decorated to finish.
