Foam Logs

I build these two logs for THE TEMPEST at Williams College in 2015. Set Design by David Gurcay-Morris. These logs were meant to be extremely lightweight, as soft as possible, and sturdy enough to handle gymnasts cartwheeling over them. They were made of insulation foam, dowels through the center, a wooden base, acetone for texture, foam coated in Jaxsan, and painted.

Life-Sized Classified Documents

Life-Sized Classified Documents

These costume props were created for SPY SCHOOL MUSICAL for the Princeton Triangle in 2017. Costume Design by Beth Goldenberg. They were made of 1’ insulation foam, were carved, sanded, and painted. Hooks and straps were added for the ease of maneuvering them only by one arm… there were 18 of them used in a kick line of documents, and could open and close their own manila folder with ease.

Much Ado Fountain

Much Ado Fountain

This fountain was created for a production of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING at Bard College at Simon’s Rock in 2014. The reliefs were sculpted by students, and I created plaster casts for them and filled the casts with expanding foam. Insulation foam was attached to the main wooden structure, and carved, and finally the reliefs were glued on. The entire foundation was then coated in a scenic dope, which was a combination of paint, joint compound, and latex caulk, and finally was painted. Set and Fountain Design by John Musall.
