Chip-Away sculpting sets

This 1972 advert from toy giant Kenner presents a comic strip view of their sculpting product Chip-Away Sets. You simply ‘chipped away’ at the soft outer layer of your block to reveal the pre-sculpted figure hidden inside! Once the outer layer is removed the figure is ready to paint with brushes and paints included in the set.
