FAQs about DXDF Wax Figures

    1. What is the meaning of wax statue/figure/sculpture?

A wax figure is an effigy of a person or a character. The history of the first wax figure can trace back to the middle age. There are three major stages of the wax figure’s material: Traditionally, wax figures are made of natural wax, which is too vulnerable; and then it is gradually replaced by a more sticky, elastic, and viscous material named microcrystalline wax, which becomes the most common wax used by wax artists and sculptors. Nowadays, wax statues adopt a new type of material – silicone gel to make wax figures because they are less likely to deform and melt. The paint can adhere to silicone better than wax. Also, the silicone gel is soft, giving the figure lifelike touch feels. However, statues made of wax usually cannot be touched since the body temperature of the visitors will melt the wax.


      2. How was the first wax figure created?

The history of making wax figures can trace back to ancient Egypt when the Egyptians made wax figures of their gods and put them in tombs. The common way to make a wax figure is by the following steps:

Measure the size. Before the production of the wax figure, the wax statue artists will measure almost every corner of the person. If the real person is not available to attend the measurement, the wax statue artists will look up information about the person or character

Make a clay sculpture of the head. This step tests the wax statue artists’ sculpting skills and techniques.

Make a mold of the head with plaster and pour the melted wax into the mold to get the head of a wax figure. Remove the rest wax and cool the workpiece down.

Install eyes and teeth into the wax head.

Paint color and plant hair.

Assemble all the parts, including the head, body, and hands.

Put on the clothes and decorations

3. Are Wax Statues hollow?

Yes. Wax statues are hollow, which can save cost and reduce weight. Each part of a wax figure is made by mold and then assembled together.

 4. Can you touch wax statues?

Usually, you cannot touch a wax statue except for the situation where the signs in the wax statue museum tell you to do it. Wax museums like DXDF’s WeiMuKaiLa welcome visitors to touch, hug and take selfies with the wax figures which are made with durable silicone and painted with many layers of pigments. But always remember that please be gentle with the wax figures when touching them.


5. What kind of hair is used for the wax figures?

The best quality wax figures use real human hair. Compared to synthetic hair, real human hair has the irreplaceable features of natural luster and bristly feel. DXDF’s wax figure artists insert each strand of the hair (including eyebrows and eyelashes) and then style it to the figure’s iconic hairstyle.
