Painting / fine artists

Wood, marble, stone, sheet metal, leather or silk – the painters of the Art Department will skilfully imitate all conceivable materials.

Large-scale backdrops, tiny sculptures, fine china painting, paintings in oil, acrylic or airbrush through to modern surfaces from the spray booth – the palette of our painters, fine artists and varnishers embraces the techniques of all epochs, styles and movements.

Scene painters

We realize all surface design stages in the construction of sets and decorations: from the simple paintjob through to the perfect patina on objects and buildings. In the studio, on the stage or on location – entirely in keeping with your requirements.

Varnishers

Four high-performance spray booths with extraction (and measuring 50 x 4 x 4 m, 12 x 5 x 4 m, 6 x 4 x 3 m and 5 x 4 x 3 m) help us provide spray coatings in all qualities and gloss levels. We work with two digital paint mixing systems that support all commonly used colour systems.

Chrome and metal effects, gilding

We can create chrome effects in many different shades on virtually any surface – from the smallest part to the largest sculpture. Besides this we also create various metal effects, real-metal varnishes and coatings, and offer gilding techniques using gold leaf and composition gold.

Coating of shaped surfaces

We have our own hydraulic 2C dosing unit (foam and coating system for poured and sprayed polyurethane foam) enabling us to coat various surfaces such as wood, mineral-based materials or Styrofoam. We apply this process to furniture, exhibition stands and event constructions, theatre, television and film sets, and in amusement parks. Three-dimensional objects and surfaces can also be created from PU foam this way. These highly rigid models are light-weight, impact-resistant and coatable.
