The making of Dwynwen…
Dwynwen was sculpted, moulded and painted by a team of 16 at Wild Creations — the prop design specialists who brought Dewi to life back in 2016.
The 4-metre wide beast was built during a period of 6 weeks and this fascinating video shows her during the final stages of construction.
The making of the Baby Dragons…
The beastly babies were also brought to life by a team of 16 at Cardiff-based prop design specialist, Wild Creations.
The babies were sculpted and moulded and then cast and built out of fibreglass before being fitted with state-of-the-art animatronic technology — allowing the babies to electronically move their heads, necks and wings.
This fascinating how-to video shows how the bundles of joy were made…
