Making wax figures is an interesting and intricate craft. It involves recreating a person, either from life or from a photograph, in the form of a wax sculpture. This process can take months to perfect, if we want to do a statue for a person who can't measure onsite, usually begins with collect a lot of pictures and sculptors taking measurements off the reference image, while they will learn about this character, in order to recreate their vision art accurately.
The sculptor must consider every small detail when creating their model-from bones and muscles down to final touches like facial expression and texture of the skin. Wax is extremely delicate, so it is important to use tools that allow for greater accuracy and precision when sculpturingor shaping any part of the figure.
The realistic features such as skin, textures, spots, beard, eyelashes and eyebrows are added which can involve building a photo library, a lot of clear pictures to show the detail features for each part. Clothes will also be fitted along with props according to what was specified at the beginning of creation.
People are often very concerned about color fading, so we used customized pigments which can perfectly make the color penetrate into the silicone skin, which not only pull together the appearance but help preserve it over time too, just what you would come to expect from a wax museum quality piece!
Of course, nothing about making wax figures is easy, especially when recreating someone who is still alive today! Each one needs exact attention to detail in order for customers or visitors to get an immersive experience, which have not changed since this beautiful craft began centuries ago, bringing smiles across generations.
