I have collaborated with my fellow students Eleanor Deacon and Katie Ann Meeson for the make of this fireplace. The prop has been built in timber structure with MDF cladding, recycled vac-formed inserts, and details in foam. We have created the faux combustion effect using an orange and yellow led light on the expanding foam logs, connected to a smoke machine.
Lastly, we have added vermiculite and sand mixed with paint to attain a dusty and worn out finish.
