How to Make a Wax Figure
For over 200 years now, Madame Tussauds have been creating realistic wax figures of your favourite stars and personalities.
It’s a complex procedure that takes our team of experts around three months to complete. It all begins with a sitting with the celebrity, which requires the team to take specific measurements of the head and body, along with hundreds of photos, to ensure the figure is as lifelike as possible.
After the sitting, we start to sculpt, mould and finish the figure. Much of the process Madame Tussaud herself used to create figures in the 1800s has been passed down and is still used today.
Take a look at the infographic below and learn how we make our world-famous wax figures.
