This rock was designed for FST's production of Shirley Valentine. The designer provided a 1/2" scale model including a little rock made from beaded styrofoam. I decided to build a base out of 1x3's and plywood to make the rock as sturdy as possible. 3" thick beaded styrofoam was attaced to the sides and the shape of the rock was carved out using hand saws and files. Cheesecloth and glue were then used to plaster the rock giving it a hard shell. The coloring was chosen by looking at pictures of rocky shoelines from Greece.
