This is the second of a two part series of time lapse videos showing the making of our full size portrait of Hershey’s chocolate founder, Milton Hershey. This sculpture was created for Hershey’s Chocolate World in Hershey, PA as part of their Chocolate Covered February event. The first phase, the making of the armature was recorded in Part 1 of the series and shows the necessary steps in creating the large size structure. The chocolate stage took Jim and Marie 10 days to complete. What you will see in the video is the application of the melted chocolate and the carving and shaping of the portrait’s details. What you cannot see, however, is the process of breaking down the chocolate and melting and tempering which is also a very vital part of working with the very delicate chocolate material.
Thanks for watching our video and please leave us your comments and questions in the appropriate areas below.
