Spraying plastic hard coat onto foam props

lady bug coated

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.

3d foam props for Colorado museum

 

condit-gore-range1

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.

Thanks!
