THE PRODUCTION SOLUTION

- Sculpture reverse-engineered as a 'female' timber mould.

- Fibreglass cast taken from mould, finished to high surface level by hand.

- Internal steel frame reinforcement fitted to rear including load bearing hanging points.

- Carrera marble effect achieved by feature film scenic artist. 

- Highly durable chlorine-resistant lacquer applied to paint effect.

SPECIALIST SCENIC PAINTING

 

Beautiful Wonder draws on its Feature Film and TV heritage and connections to offer some of the most exceptional scenic artists and specialist painters in the industry. For occasions when fabricating something from the original material isn't practical for either weight, availability or budget reasons, surfaces such as stone, marble, masonry and even exotic hardwoods are painted by hand. Applying a polished high gloss lacquer afterwards gives a truly authentic effect to touch.

Hyper-real scenic backdrops are all also feasible.

FOCUS:

3m 'green granite' sculpture plinth.

50 x 20' Skyscape, 6m humpback whale skin and barnacle detailing, decorative floral artistry on 3m Apple sculpture.

6 sapling oaks were planted with Trees for Cities for this project.

Each of which will off-set one tonne of carbon in its lifetime.
