Polystyrene helps to make movie magic

Make up and costumes are all part of creating the theatre of special effects that goes hand in hand with making movies and television. The set and props are also a major feature in creating the right setting and often transporting the viewer into far away lands and times.

Polystyrene has long been used as an ideal material for building movie sets and TV props. Its lightweight and moisture resistant nature makes it long lasting, easy to transport and easy to work with (shame the same can’t be said about working with children or animals!).

Did you know…

Polystyrene is ideal for oversized props like statues and columns, as well as miniature landscapes and details.
