Most Los Angeles Prop fabrication shops do more than movie, TV,and commercial props.we build trade show props,giant Fiberglas marketing props,custom Christmas decorations for Beverly Hills stores.And many more.

The Fiberglas props are normally  a hard or very hard urethane foam.Very Hard is a 20lb. Density foam.its about the density of Bondo.After carving the shape you need this only needs a coat of boat epoxy to get a good finish.right now in the shop we have big half moons being carved.Then they will get a heavy coat of Fiberglas  and hollowed out,then lit from the inside.

I was lucky to grow up in Los Angeles where we had a surf board building class in jr. High school
