Toy Dinosaur Figurine – How It’s Made

From the Science Channel‘s How It’s Made tv show, watch how artisans create detailed toy figurines: from drawings, to computer software, to 3D printed and hand-carved sculptures, to the casting of silicone, plaster, and zinc molds. Follow that process up with hand-painting and airbrushing.
