EPS foam is a great material. Light weight, not too expensive & relatively safe to work with. Its only flaw is it’s fragility. We spray a strong 2 part plastic coating on our props. Then we finish the look with automotive paints. Using materials that are industry proven means our sculptures last indoors and outside in the elements. The prop I’m coating in the photo was designed for children to climb on.

This intricate hand carved eps foam sculpture is extremely
light and durable. The finish is Matthews paint and the
lettering was in 3M vinyl. Thanks to all law enforcement
for your service.

These sculpted creature displays were fun to make! A 6 foot long field ant
and a 4 ft tall Red Breasted Nut Hatch. That's a bird.
The accomplished exhibit company Condit Exhibits gave us this project.
They were great to work with and supplied us w/ all the measurements, templates and
CAD drawings we needed. The ant sculpture has a steel skeleton and an epoxy and
urethane coated eps foam body. The bird is made of eps foam w/ a Futura urethane
hard coated shell. Tough stuff! Chris Blarsky at Absolut Extremes painted the bird for us.

This project was fun! Big 3d props for the debut of Super Mario 3d Land in Times Square New York.
Short time line, limited budget, no problem! These giant eps foam, polyurethane hard coated props
were scattered throughout EPS Doublet's 3000 square foot interactive display. Sounds from the game
played while participants ran through the coarse. One of the two giant Piranah plants actually spit water!
This interactive display was built for EPS Doublet in Colorado. Thanks guy's!

This sculpted display was made for Plasticare in Englewood, Colorado. They were hired to build a
realistic 3d wall panel that appeared to be cut from the earth! They had us construct the entire prop.
It has a foam core with hydrostone casts from actual paleontologists molds of dinosaur prints
here in Colorado. We then used hydrostone, dyes and milled fiberglass to build the layers and create a
stone like surface. This 3D display was less exact than most of our work and it was fun to cut loose a little!

Here's another 3 dimensional billboard for Amelie Companies Colorado State Patrol TACT
campaign. Ted mills of Hi-Country Signs installed our props and floating letters after removing
80% of the original board. He installed the shorter 8 ft. tall panels 1st, then the white lettering
and finally the sculpted foam polyurethane hard coated crash roll. The top billboard was
run for 1 month. Then the 3d billboard was the final part of the narrative. Thanks to the
creativity of Gordy Hirsch and Paul Sugget at Amelie Company & Hi-Country Sign's
expertise, all went smooooooth! Hopefully this 3d advertising helps make the roads
a little safer. Here's the local news coverage. http://www.9news.com/dontmiss/216554/630/3D-billboard-Dont-get-close-to-semis-

This sculpted foam display with polyurethane hard coat was built for
Blizz Yogurt. Specifically the Las Vegas Mirage Hotel location.
It was built to appear full 3d but its only 11 inches deep so it does
not take up valuable retail space. Built in 2 sections for easy shipping.
Durable, light, eye catching & affordable!

Roobar in Denver Colorado had us build this 3d sign sculpture to help
get them noticed and draw people in! Sculpted eps foam with urethane
hard coat construction. Light weight, durable and affordable! Thank you
to Gordon Signs for the install. We often take a 2 dimensional reference
and sculpt foam to match the customers logo or product.

Kemosabe Tea Company in Denver, Colorado commissioned this slick car top prop!
The car is now being wrapped with graphics and once complete will hard to ignore.
The ambiguity of a Smart car with a big red teapot gets noticed as well.
This eps foam prop is hand coated with fiberglass and mounts through the
polycarbonate sun roof. The 3d sign gets a chuckle or at least a head scratch
when seen! Ill post finished photos in the future.

This is a 3 dimensional marketing project that will definitely get noticed! Safco,
makers of fine furniture among other things, commissioned these giant plastic
jugs to promote the fact that they use recycled plastic in their products.
These polyurethane coated props will grab attention!!! Thanks to my contact
