Who doesn’t know her – The Mouse from the Westdeutscher Rundfunk, known from the “Sendung mit der Maus”?! On March 7, 2021, she will be an incredible 50 years old and still enjoys great popularity. She has accompanied us for several generations – without a word, but always with a loud wink. 😉
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of TheMouse and its laughing and factual stories, ACCENTFORM was commissioned by WDR to produce a big mouse figure. We scaled and adapted the 3D data provided by the customer. Based on these data, we milled and assembled the model in several segments using our 5-axis milling machines. This styrofoam figure was then encased in fiberglass using a hand-laminating process. The surface was sanded by hand and colored by airbrush according to exact customer specifications. A final, extremely matt clear varnish serves to protect the airbrush paint. To give the large mouse a stable hold, the finished sculpture was mounted on a round metal plate. A special highlight for us during the work was the visit of the WDR film team. The station accompanied part of the production and summarized it in a film report.
