Polystyrene Sculpting & Hotwiring.
A hot-wire foam cutter is a tool used to cut polystyrene foam and similar materials.
The device consists of a thin, taut metal wire, often made of nichrome or stainless steel, or a thicker wire preformed into a desired shape, which is heated via electrical resistance to approximately 200°C.
As the wire is passed through the material to be cut, the heat from the wire vaporises the material just in advance of contact.
The depth of the cut is limited only by the wire length. Width of cut is limited by throat, if any.
Silicon Mould making & Casting.
Using silicon moulds is a smart way of making your budget go further. If it stands still it can be moulded – the possibilities are endless.
Your chosen item, once moulded, can then be reproduced (cast) many times over.
These casts are quick to produce and straightforward to paint.
Polyurethane Resin / Foam Spraying.
The system of 2-part poly spraying has traditionally been used to insulate large areas – e.g industrial unit walls & roof spaces.
Similar to a can of expanding foam but delivered on an industrial scale.
It can also be used to coat surfaces to make them waterproof and is used for underwater storage units & to inhibit moisture intrusion on a range of structures – roofs, walls, walkways.
All products used have Class 1 Fire Resistance.
Detailing & Finishing.
Surface finishes for sculpture can be either natural—bringing the material of the sculpture itself to a finish—or applied. Almost all applied surface finishes preserve as well as decorate.
Poly Sculpture & Foam/Resin Spraying to produce set’s for BBC One’s new 3 part series.
Tim Roth & Samantha Morton will lead the cast for 10 Rillington Place, which begins filming in Scotland.
This gripping three-part drama is based on the real-life multiple murders undertaken by John Christie in Notting Hill in the 1940s and Fifties. The subsequent tragic miscarriage of justice, which led to Timothy Evans being hanged for a crime he did not commit, contributed towards the abolition of capital punishment in Britain.
Tim Roth (The Hateful Eight, Cannes Film Festival award-winning Chronic, Pulp Fiction, Lie To Me) plays John Christie, who lived at the infamous address with his wife, Ethel (Samantha Morton, The Unloved, Longford, In America), from where he carried out the multiple murders. Newly-weds Timothy and Beryl Evans, played by Nico Mirallegro (The Village, Common) and Jodie Comer (Doctor Foster, Thirteen), fall prey to Christie’s influence after moving into a neighbouring flat.
Phillippa Giles, Executive Producer for Bandit Television, says: “This is an incredible cast. A tribute to the beautiful texture of the scripts and Craig Viveiros’s reputation as a director.”
The 3×60 drama is made by BBC Drama Production in association with Bandit Television for BBC One. It is directed by Craig Viveiros (And Then There Were None) and written by Ed Whitmore (He Kills Coppers) and Tracey Malone (Born To Kill).
Commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC TV Channels and iPlayer, and Polly Hill, Controller BBC Drama Commissioning, the executive producers are Phillippa Giles for Bandit Television, part of Endemol Shine Group, and Hilary Salmon for BBC Drama Production. It is produced by Sharon Bloom (Silent Witness). Rillington Place will be filmed at BBC Scotland’s Dumbarton Studios, and on location in Glasgow and London.
