Hand carved 12' and 16' totem
poles in polystyrene.
|Now regarded as an
industry standard for producing
light weight prop items, medium
and large sculpture, building
frontages and architectural
details. Polystyrene is also an
excellent material for mimicking
most textures like rough stone
fašades, cast iron, rock
formations and organic finishes.
I have used polystyrene to
recreate everything from small
figurative pieces, tribal masks
and totem poles right up to whole
villages, huge caves, cliff faces
and even a 40 foot Viking
longboat. Using hot-wire, custom
made jigs and good old carving and
sculpting, virtually anything can
be reproduced in poly and finished
in a variety of coatings from
flexible latex to PU hard coat
