Flints are a theatrical chandler which provides specialist theatrical products to the theatre world, the film and television industries, museums, marine businesses, shops (for display) and schools which are running theatrical productions. So the likes of workshop and production managers, scenic artists, prop makers, set painters, carpenters and engineers all come to Flints for theatre-related products, supplies and materials.
The products on offer are fascinating; from simple stage paints, prop-making materials, fake blood and glow-in-the-dark tapes to
bubble machines, mirror balls, shimmering slash curtaining, confetti cannons, pyrotechnics, fog effects and sugarglass ‘breakaway’ beer bottles for fight scenes like you see in the movies!
Flints have recently launched a series of Discovery Workshops which are held once a month. One recent workshop centred on a casting system called Jesmonite. This is a water-based resin casting and laminating system which is suitable for moulding a wide range of realistic stage props, particularly when used in tandem with Flints’ range of highly realistic stone and metal gel finishes. You can see some of the pictures from that workshop here.
Another Discovery Workshop is planned for September, the exact date yet to be confirmed at time of writing. This one will be all about prop-making with different materials and thermoplastics.
