The Making of the Wax figures
The wax figures are regularly replaced. When celebrities are no longer celebrities they are removed. It takes three months to make wax figure. The first cast is made from clay. The final product is no longer made of wax but of fibreglass.
Madame Tussaud, whose real name was Marie Grosholtz, fled revolutionary Paris in 1802. She travelled all over England with her uncle’s wax cabinet and settled in London. She added wax figures of people who made the news.
