Large props make a big impact and Mark has a great track record of making them for a variety of events in entertainment and leisure to art installations and promotional campaigns. He tends to sculpt in polystyrene and coat with a hard exterior such as fibreglass and resin. He can mould and cast large props in multiples if required. He can also design the props to be easily assembled and transportable.
