We recently completed this 1.4m high Coral sculpture for our clients, Central Leisure Developments. It was to be displayed at the Red Sea Development exhibition in the UAE. We chose our Massivit 1800 to achieve the lightweight print, as we could produce the sculpture quickly and keep costs low.
With only one week turnaround, we printed the sculpture in six parts in just 20 hours. Once printed, we primed the pieces with polyester filler, and used a fibreglass-adhesive mixture to join the parts together. After the print was in one piece we sanded it for a second time, filled in any gaps that remained and our High Quality Finishing team sprayed the sculpture with a white top coat.
Once in-situ, the client used blue lighting within the display to bring the sculpture to life. Watch the video.
