Re-vamping the Adelaide David Jones Santa’s Grotto
For the new Santa’s Grotto I created an enchanted forest path including full-size fibreglass trees to decorate the entrance.
The trees were carved from polystyrene and hard-coated in fibreglass before being art-painted. This was for a set which the Adelaide public would interact with so it had to be very robust and child-friendly.
Additional painting, prop-making and set-dressing was done on the interior of the cave.
