Here’s some exclusive footage of the making of HRH Prince Harry’s wax figure, recently launched at Madame Tussauds London!

the first part that we do in terms of this process is we get to work making the head and body out of clay and one sculptor start sculpting the body another sculptor works on the head and between them takes about four weeks four to five weeks on the head four to five weeks on the body the two come together and then we send the figure to be molded a special plaster mold is made of the clay head it's done in a very traditional way it's done exactly the same way as Madame Tussaud would have done it 250 or so years ago the heads of course are produced in wax the molten wax is poured into the mold the mold is then pulled apart and you're left with a hollow cast wax head the hair insertion is remarkable part the whole process the hairs are literally inserted one at a time once this part of the process is done the head is sent to coloring and the color is to use special oil-based paints to to color the heads the color is slowly built up in a variety of ways of creating a very realistic skin color and texture so once all the parts are colored the figure is assembled and then it's dressed so there you have it the whole process from start to finish and it normally takes about three months

  1. I can't help but think how terrifying it would be if you were a sculpted and you uncovered the head out of the mould and saw that smile xD Other than that it looks AMAZING

  2. I cannot believe this is fake. This is so very well done! At the end I was expecting him to look at the camera when it turned lol that's how real it looked like
