Giant Shovel!

 

xcel shovel

This Monster was built for a local outdoor advertising company.  They needed a quick turn around on a

31 ft long shovel for their customer.  This 3d prop is made with: steel, plywood, eps foam & urethane

hard coat.  Its 2 parts that bolt together.  It isn't as heavy as you might think.  This 3d billboard is hard to ignore!

Ted Mills w/ HiCountry Signs pulled off a tricky install.

Several buzz words made into giant sculptures.  These sculpted foam 3d letters are finished

front and back.  They are hard coated with polyurethane from FUTURA Coatings and finished

giant light bulb prop

 

ge-bulb-award

This 3 dimensional giant light bulb was built for out friends at Red7e in Kentucky.

They conceptualized this unique foam polyurethane hard coated award for one of

their clients.  We weighted the base to add stability.  Doesn't get much more realistic!

Steel, wood, various plastics, automotive paints …. whatever it takes to make it work.

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!

Foam props for Super Mario Brothers 3D Land in Times Square!!!

mario-21

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!

3d sculpted foam dinosaur prints for Colorado Government

 

plasticare-dino-printsmini

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!

3d billboard for Colorado State Patrol

 

amelie-company-csp-billboard-2-low-res1

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-
