In 2017 we were approached about making a special award for Tennent's to acknowledge those individuals who have had an outstanding impact on Scottish life and culture. The brief was simple enough, a replica of their pint-size can, with customer paint and graphics.
Probably our favourite recipient to date :)
We made custom molds using a regular pints sized can as a master. The castings we made from polyurethane resin, we had a series of molds to increase productivity and could produce 15 castings per day. Each resin casting was finished by hand before being, primed and painted with a metallic gold automotive paint. The decals and vinyls were applied by hand before the lacquer was applied. To avoid any issues with glare whilst being photographed, we opted for a matt lacquer.
Since 2017, there have been dozen of recipients, from the world of film, TV, comedy, music, sport and other areas of Scottish culture.Here are just a few of our favourites.
