Our friends at Fibreglass UK asked us to make masters of some Peppa Pig characters. They would then take these masters and mould and cast fibreglass sculpts that would have animatronics inside to make their arms wave.

We sculpted the characters; Peppa Pig, Mommy Pig, Daddy Pig, George Pig and The Queen, in polystyrene. From these, as we only needed one cast from each, we made plaster waste moulds. We sanded the plaster moulds to make the surface as smooth as possible and then cast in fibreglass. Once out of the moulds we sprayed with a polyester resin and sanded to a smooth finish.
We enjoyed making these and the client loved them, in fact they were so impressed with the finishes that they have since recommended us for numerous projects that they don’t have the time to look at.
