How We Created Ocean-Themed Mini Golf For Wilderness Resort [Episode 22]

We Are Creative Works Episode 22

This is the twenty-second episode in a series called We Are Creative Works. In these videos, we show off different projects that our talented team is working on. Below is a transcript of the video.

In today’s video, I’m going to show you how we created an awesome ocean themed mini golf course in Wisconsin.

Hi. My name is Daniel Faidley. I’m in the Foam Department here at Creative Works.

The project was an underwater scene. It was really cool. We did a couple of octopi and a pretty giant eel that wrapped around a column. It was about 10 feet tall and I had a lot of fun making some pretty cool props there.

The Design team created these really cool concepts. They give us a 3D rendering. It comes to our department and we run it on the CNC table.

Then we have to do a lot of under cuts and get to use the sawzalls and get to buzz some foam off and sand it down and really kind of bring it to life.

Then I get to take it into the hard coating room where I get to spray it with basically a plastic material. It gives it the durability and the strength to stand up to kids running around smacking it with golf clubs and that kind of thing.

Once I get done with the hard coating we get to send it to the Paint Department. They put some really cool touches on it with the paint job. They make it look really slick.

So along with our really cool epic props that we make with the cool blacklight paint, we also have Electric Edging, which creates a really nice ambiance to the courses and takes our Cosmic Golf to another level.
