How an Emmy® Is Made

By Lexi Sisk, NATAS-SF/NorCal Chapter

Ever wonder how an Emmy® Award is made? Each individual statuette is hand made. 

The process starts with melted metal poured into a mold, once removed the metal is polished. The statuette is then coated with zinc, copper, nickel, and pure silver–before it is dipped in 24-karat gold. The statuettes are then individually assembled before placed in their custom boxes.
