Giant Soldiers!

Last year’s 6 week Intensive Fx Course students were able to get their hands well and truly ‘dirty’ on some considerable work experience right here helping us duplicate and create four, 8 foot high Toy Soldiers for a local company who needed to supply them for Christmas displays in a major shopping complex.

This entailed some considerably large silicone and fibreglass mould making and some serious hard work for all involved. Particular thanks and congratulations to Charlotte Cook and Tamsin Greenbank for their excellent work, diligence and effort on that project.

Additionally, we also needed to create 15, 2 ft high Penguin models for similar seasonal installations, which gave everyone the added fun of sculpting a character from scratch, taking it right through the moulding and duplication to the final painted finishing stage.
