Step 1: Make a Dinosaur!
Step 2: Make the mold
Next, I paper mache'd the model thickly. (sorry for the lack of pictures here)
Step 3: Hollowing the mold
I also duct taped the inside and some of the outsides to make it smoother and so that less material would transfer to the chocolate when completed.
Step 4: Melt the Chocolate
Keep in mind that any chocolate that drips during this step is fair game for eating :)
Start by melting the chocolate (you can find other 'ibles on doing this). It is important to remember to be patient, melt the chocolate on a double broiler, on low heat, and also don't let water get into your chocolate!
I used more about 8 pounds of bakers chocolate which I found on sale for a dollar per pound (my lucky day).
