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 ‘The Capture’.
One for spy fans, The Capture is a contemporary thriller about a wrongful arrest that unveils a complex and far-reaching conspiracy. As the press release asks, “in an age where visual images can be drastically manipulated, yet criminal justice relies so heavily on video evidence – can you always believe what you see?” We’ll be able to decide later this year when Ben Chanan’s six-part series arrives on BBC One, starring Holliday Grainger.
Written and directed by Ben Chanan (Cyberbully) and produced by Heyday Television and NBCUniversal International Studios, Callum Turner (War and Peace, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) and Holliday Grainger (Strike, Cinderella) will lead the cast of The Capture, an acutely timely surveillance thriller set in London for BBC One.
