Madame Tussauds Las Vegas Announces First Figures for 2016: Donny & Marie
Madame Tussauds Las Vegas will immortalize world-renowned musical performers Donny & Marie in 2016. The attraction has announced they will be the first new figures in 2016. The brother and sister duo have been involved since the inception of the figures. Their sitting took more than three hours per person with the studio team taking approximately 300 measurements. Now this step is complete, their measurements have been used to sculpt their figures in clay by hand, then covered in a plaster cast. The clay was removed from the casts, poured in, and allowed to cool. The next few weeks will be spent meticulously inserting each hair by hand, which is customary for Madame Tussauds’ studio team. Finally, the figures will be fitted with acrylic eyes and teeth, while countless layers of tinted paint will be applied to build up skin tones and replicate their faces.
