The advantages of sculpting with polystyrene

Spur Creative Workshop News and PR from Spur Creative Workshop - Published 24 October 2016 Here at Spur Creative, we’re experts in crafting spectacular sculptures and models for all of your decorative or display needs.
We offer a range of services to suit your requirements, but it's fair to say that we are big fans of using polystyrene in our creative projects. The reason for that? Well...

Polystyrene is something that we all come across on a daily basis - not necessarily in the sculpture form of a display in a shop window or at a specific event, but also in the more basic forms of the packaging in your recent online order, or protection, like in the inside of your bike helmet.

On top of the fact that polystyrene is available and easily accessible in a variety of forms, ranging in expansion and density, it has a series of other benefits that make it the perfect choice for sculpting and bringing your prop design idea to life.


As shown by the multitude of uses of polystyrene that we've already talked about, it is a very versatile material. Not only is polystyrene available in different forms, it also is malleable and easy to cut, shape, sculpt and coat - it's a propmaker's dream!

It is possible for our creative professionals to create replicas without any problem, as well as curved walls and irregular shapes, giving you limitless options for your project ideas and designs.

Fast turnaround

By coming to a professional and dedicated team like us here at Spur Creative, you're not only guaranteeing the highest quality results, but also a fast turnaround. Thanks to our expertise, your polystyrene-based props and retail displays can be created in very little time.

But that certainly doesn't mean we're skimping on the finer details - we know just how important detail and lifelike details are, and that's why we make sure all of our projects have the wow-factor that everyone is looking for.


The beauty of using polystyrene for sculptures, models, and other props is that there is no limit to its size. However big or small your design is, it's possible with polystyrene. From a handheld sculpture to a grand retail display or giant prop, polystyrene has the ability to produce quality props at any scale. Have a look at some of our recent projects and see for yourself!


Polystyrene is a relatively inexpensive material, which is one reason why it's so widely used. When it comes to using other materials, the amount or time-scale may render a bill that you cannot work with, which is where polystyrene comes in as the money-saving alternative.

Plus, not only is polystyrene cheap to buy, it's also durable and performs well for decorative purposes - particularly when it's teamed with the right coating and finish. This means youÂ’re really getting the most for your money.
