Oversize coffee bean sculpture
A recent project involved making an oversize coffee bean prop for a product promotion of Nescafe Greenblend coffee. The client required the large three dimensional prop to be made in the shape of a heart to match the two dimensional product logo.
Coffee bean prop construction
A large 1200mm tall hero coffee bean was carved in polystyrene and from this a latex mould was made. Two oversize beans were then cast in fibreglass from the mould and joined together in the shape of a heart. The sculpture was then painted to match the colors of the Greenblend coffee logo.
To mount the coffee bean prop on its plinth a steel sleeve was constructed and fitted inside the coffee bean prior to assembly. This was used to fit a locating pin which slotted into a sleeve mounted in the plinth. Below are some "behind the scenes" photos taken during the construction of the oversize coffee bean prop.
