A wax figure is a depiction created using a wax substance to look lifelike. Wax is an excellent medium for models because it is easily cut and reshaped at room temperature.
But currently, we have found a better material that is silicone gel, which can make the life span of statues longer and not easy to deform, because silicone is soft that makes the statue have a soft touch feeling just like a real person, and silicone with our customized pigments can make the skin tone more vivid and long-lasting.
The process to make Silicone Wax figure
Before the creation of the statue, sculptors get to know the person first, they look at videos, photographs, paintings, and they know the character's story and habits. When do measurements, over 200 photographs of the person taken. They record the eye color, hair, skin, beauty marks, and how the star behaves.
Sculptors will refer to as many of existing photos and videos if the subject is a historical figure or not available to take measurements.
Creating the mold
Sculptors will create a life-size clay mold for the person first, after customer approval of the clay model. We turn the clay model to a silicone mold, then use the mold to do a life-size silicone statue.
Eyes and teeth are installed to the silicone statue. Afterward, a colorist will paint the silicone statue, then apply around twenty layers of pigments on the figure to ensure the statue have natural skin tone and texture. Then hair staffs will do hair transplant for hairs, eyebrows, eyelashes, mustache, chest hair etc., and hairdresser have haircut just like real person. Lastly, the sculpture goes undergoes a thorough critiquing process.
