Sculpted foam elephant head for Colorado Brewery

25 years of building props and my customers keep throwing me curve balls.  We built an eps foam head that fit snug over the existing bull head and horns.  The ears were sewn upholstery pads that were Velcro  attached in case a rider crashed down on them.   Keep’n it safe as possible!  Odell’s was the end user.  I built these for Proctor Productions in Denver.  We’re good at strong but light here at Eyecandyprops.

Hard coated foam sculpture for Colorado’s Air Cannons Inc!

 

24-inch-impact-wrench1

These are 2 of the recent foam sculptures we made for Air Cannons Inc.  They give us an aluminum barrel and

we give them back a cool marketing tool for their customer!  These are light weight and tough.  The impact

wrench is for their client Lowes. The guitar has wire strings and lots of other details.  The next step is Jake

puts the gun part on the barrel base and they are ready to shoot shirts and other promotional items into

crowds of fans!  They are a consistent customer and these are the smaller props we make.

Thanks everybody!

3d duck sculptures for children’s parade

 

duck-parade

We built these EPS foam sculptures for a parade and the props had to be light enough for

children to pull.  The props also had to be durable.   The foam sculptures have a urethane

hard coat.  Each section can disconnect from the other easily.  This 3 dimensional display

is one of the more light hearted projects we've built.   The guy in helmet just hopped off his

motorcycle.  We don't wear biker helmets at work!

Tough teeth for 3d shark head sculpture at Denver Aquarium

 

denver-aquarium-shark-head

This head was made for the Downtown Denver Aquarium.  It sits on top of a donation box so it sees its fair

share of abuse.  The teeth are what break constantly.  Even though they had metal pins in them.

We removed the existing teeth, cut holes into the fiberglass gums, cut teeth from 1/4 inch aluminum

plate, sculpted them to be more teeth like but not dangerously sharp, epoxied the teeth back into the

gums, used nail polish to repaint the gums and lastly painted the teeth with porcelain bath tub paint.

Sometimes the most work goes into the smaller projects!

big 3d foam props for hard to clean stains!!!!!

 

v

These retail product displays were made a few yrs. ago for OxyClean!

I just enlarged their products for a store front display.  The customer needed

large, durable lightweight props to suspend from fishing line.  No stain is

too tough for this spray bottle!

Colorado State Patrol 3 dimensional billboard prop.

 

chp-tact-billboardcollagemini

Here it is! My last 2 weeks; cutting and piecing together wood,  welding steel braces and gluing vinyl images…

This was a great challenge and we didn't use the traditional foam sculpture approach.  Sometimes foam isn't

the way to to build a giant billboard prop.  This big prop was designed by  Amelie Company in Colorado and was

built for the Colorado State Patrol's ad campaign.   Specifically "Don't tailgate".  Thanks to Ted Mills for the smooth

crane installation !!!
