A Mural To Marvel

For this unique summer experience, one wall rose above the rest. With a seamlessly printed mural, custom designed and manufactured in-house, Merestone transformed the space into a photo opportunity for guests and locals. Measuring at 15′ tall x 30′ wide, the entire space needed a wow factor and that’s where the in-house Merestone Creative Agency conceptualized the break-through wall. From start to finish, every element of this summer experience was created to excite guests and tie together the overall theme.

Looking for a superhero to rescue an upcoming experience or event? Have no fear; Merestone is here. Give us the call and our fantastic team will answer.

Fallen Statue of Liberty

For a movie premiere, Merestone fabricated the Fallen Statue of Liberty, inspired by a post-apocalyptic world. Routed out and then sculpted by hand, the Merestone scenic crew carefully carved her tilted face, crown with spires, and torch. A low-poly artistic technique gave her a beautiful composition that differentiated this replica. After a complete paint job executed by the talented Merestone artists on staff, the hardware to illuminate her torch was installed. Oh yes; the craftsmen assembled a flickering LED light to go right on top. She was a fully-functional Statue of Liberty and ready in 15 days for her debut on the red carpet.

BEST. SUMMER. EVER. Installation

Project

Arizona summers are no joke and no one wants to get caught in the heat, unless it’s poolside. As an seasonal attraction, the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort promoted their BEST. SUMMER. EVER. experience and wanted custom photo ops installations, capturing the essence of summer and reminding guests of their favorite summer things; the beach, cold drinks, sweet treats, and relaxation.

Summer Time Livin’

To start, the Creative Services team presented the client digital renders of summer inspired photo ops and four were chosen; the lemonade stand, catch of the day, beach bum survival kit, and the popsicles.

Stay as Cool as a Popsicle

The five popsicles were inspired by the recognizable summer time treats kids would chase the ice cream truck to get. Merestone’s talented scenic team routed out each shape in detail. The twin pops had a bite mark in the corner while the push pop appeared melty. The firecracker pop had a distinguishable shape with ridges that the carpenters researched to capture just right in the final sculpture. After carving out all five, Merestone’s painters took over. Each popsicle had unique, vibrant colors that needed to be matched and applied just right. Once packaged for travelling, Merestone transported the popsicles and other installations to the resort.

Mural, Mural on the Wall

Because pop art murals create a buzz and attract people like honey, the Fairmont Princess requested an unique mural be added as well. Merestone’s amazing artists hand-drew the design and the client loved it! The final project was a masterpiece and gained loads of social love.

S’moresland Installation

Project

As a Christmas experience, the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort hosted a family-friendly themed attraction during the holiday season. They requested Merestone build immersive scenic installations for their S’moresland ticketed event. The planning for this scale of creation began months prior with intensive collaboration and loads of coffee. First, Creative Services sketched and designed digital renders of the S’moresland archway, campfires, and s’mores flag pillars. Amazed by the visuals, the client approved and Merestone moved forward with fabrication.

Creating a Scene

The imaginative engineers, carpenters, and painters at Merestone’s scenic shop needed to capture the look of real s’mores. The texture of graham crackers was closely studied to replicate in the sculpting of the archway and pillars. While the carpenters researched texture, Merestone’s painters examined how toasty marshmallows change color when held over a flame. To give the impression the marshmallows were fluffy, the team carved them to billow out and have a round look. Each section of s’mores tilted left or right but stacked up perfectly to form the archway and pillars. Once the scenic pieces were finished, Merestone delivered them to the resort and set them up perfectly for visitors to enjoy. They looked good enough to eat.

S’mores aren’t the only delicious snack Merestone can create! Check out the popsicles made for the BEST. SUMMER. EVER. attraction:
