We can produce items in both in a soft/crumbly rubber, or a tough semi-rigid rubber. Rubber items can be cast as flat sheets, mirrored, or shapes such as bottles or glasses, in any transparent or solid colour.
Rigid Rubber (shown in the video above) is perfect for use in fight scenes where you might want to threaten someone with a broken bottle, which is soft enough not injure them if jabbed into their skin, but is rigid enough not to flop around during filming. It won’t tare or degrade with repeated abuse, would be supplied as a complete shape, and you would cut up yourself.
The soft/crumbly rubber sheets perform exceptionally well as dressing in fight sequences where broken breakaway glass may be considered too hard for actors to roll around in. They’re supplied in 1ft square sheets, and due to their flexibility are only really suitable for smaller broken pieces.
