We're well and truly settled back into the routine fulfilling Online orders and preparing for a few exciting large scale projects coming up next month!

We have been in discussions with  a major airline to replicate one of their planes in the form of a large scale sculpture in Belfast. We have some details to finalise then the fun will commence  -this will be one of the largest public sculptures we've ever undertaken so exciting times ahead!

The Online Store has  had a few new additions since our last post! More Cake Dummies options including Styro - Polystyrene Balls and 3D letters are now available.

Letters can be ordered at various depths and heights and are a great idea for home crafts - the characters can be painted and decorated by kids or adults! PVA & glitter is a big hit, a lot of our clients love this option as well as the usual water based paints! -give it a try :)

We are now stocking various Styro Balls, they are in constand demand so we've made them, available now in both solid and hallow options. We will be ading other items like cones, eggs and hearts over the coming weeks.

We always love hear ideas or requests for new products so just let us know if anything new is required and the teams will look further into manufacturing/ stocking it!

Some cool projects we worked on since our last blog included the above prop for Paddy Power's Xmas Party and various props for Trinity College's Open Day. The props have great camera appeal and are a firm favourite of all the marketing/advertising companies.

The images are shared and uploaded across the the various social media platforms - the visual draw and hashtag link make them brilliant for new advertisng campaigns.

Props, Props and more Props :)

We have been unfortunately neglecting our blog over the past 2 months - work has been crazy with lots of exciting projects ongoing in the workshop!

We won a great contract in September with global tech giant Oracle to design and manufacture 50 lettering props for the launch of #OracleDigital at all their offices around the world. We had a 5 day turn around to contend with so the props could be shipped to the various destination on time for the official launch!

Thankfully everything worked really well and our clients were delighted with the finished products!

Onward to the next cool project we went, working this time with on 3 x 5ft props for OktoberfestBeag 2016. The props were sculpted in Polystyrene, painted and vinyl graphics applied then off to the festival held at various locations around the island.

Again working to a tight deadline we are very fortunate to have invested in large foam and vinyl cutting machinery to enable short lead times are met effectively and efficiently for ourselves and the client alike.

During the madness of all the projects we found time to design and make some lettering props for our friends at Today Fm. The station is at the forefront of raising much needed funds for The Irish Cancer Society and so we felt the need to play our part and donate some props to the cause.

The teams used them at their various events around the country, we are really honoured to have been able to help in a small way.

So here we are September, we missed updating our blog in July with holidays so we will be overloading this months blog post:)

This one has been built with stainless steel and fibreglass so its very light, weather proof but most importantly it's really strong! Coated in 2k paints chosen by our client.

It's festival season here in Ireland and event organisers are constantly seeking innovative signage props to entice attendees in the marketing building up and while at the event.

We produced a 9ft sign for The Park After Dark Festival held annually in Glaslough Co.Monaghan. Our sign greeted music fans to the Elephant Rom sponsored stage. Using a mix of mix of bright funky colours and fonts the sign survived the madness and is ready for next years event.

The Blues Festival came to Monaghan Town again this year to huge crowds from across the island of Ireland. One of the better known locations for the music is AN Poc Fada, the owner asked us to design a prop which members of the public could donate towards the music.

Having already a 3ft minion in storage we decided to covert him to being a blues musician for that weekend. Stuart rocked the weekend with a cigar box blues guitar and stood on an amp.

Monies could be donated by dropping coins into the guitar head which then dropped into the amp for safe keeping!

3D letters are always requested for events, just this week Maynooth University had our hashtag props out for graduation! We personalise the props for each of the clients needs so they choose the fonts and colours from designs and information we supply pre manufacture.

As June arrives the Sculp Team have had a crazy month with more creative madness unleashed to the Public! :)

We have been working with Trinity College Dublin on props for the Social Media Awards #sockies16 which can now also be used for future events and marketing the College in general. We designed the props for the team based on a short brief supplied to us initially.

 The hash tag props have proven a successful addition to photo ops for all target audiences.

Another important event coming up for the IMNDA is #juneball16, the guys contacted us to design and deliver 3 props for a photo op they held recently. The event raises much needed funds for the Charity so we were delighted to have assisted the team in realising their visions!

We have been overwhelmed with people getting in touch with unique orders, a lot frustrated that this service has been non existent to them with many creative projects getting scrapped! We encourage anyone who needs shaping, carving done to get in touch , what's in the Online Store is just the tip of the Ice Berg to what we create and make daily!

An 18" Pillow Dummy and 12" sphere in foam were just 2 of the random requests this week :)
