It Requires Considerable InteUi(renc and
Skill to Color and Pose Dummy Cor
rectly or to Provide It wit Clothes Am
'Nearly every one has at some time seen
a collection of good wax works; perhaps at
th. Edsn Mnsee In New York or at Mme.
Tnssaud's in Iondon or the Musee Grevln
in Paris. Yet to how mnny has it occurred
that the making of these fibres require
a very larp" amount of time, labor, and
artistic skill? The process of making wax
figures is much more complicated than
one would at first sight imagine. Take,
for Instance, the group of Lincoln lib :rat
inpt the negroes.
Suppose such a group has been decided
upon and the general arrangement elab
orated, perhaps with the aid of some pencil
sketches. Then the first step is to model
the figures in clay, which is very necessary
in order that the presence of the body may
be felt under the clothes, which otherwise
as in poor wax works? wrinkle and flap
around the body In a most unnatural way.
The first class museum keeps, a regular
sculptor, usually a very clever artist, who
works on a salary and is kept busy nough
in a larpe and well appointed studio. When
be hfis finished his figure Abraham Lin
coln in this ease in clay, a plaster moid
is made. Then it is readr to !e reproduced
in wax that is, the head and hands, but
not the body.
Right here we learn a curious fact.
Very little of the "wax figure" is really
made of wax. Theexposed portions of the
body, heart and hands are, but those cov
ered by clothes tre not. The latter are
made of carton picrre, Which consists of
strips of pnpi-rand linen pressed alternate
ly into the plaster mold, the inner side of
the latter being lined in this manner to a
thickness of about a quarter of an inch.
This layer is then pressed down by a thin
cct.tin ; of plaster, and when the carton
thns formed is dry and ready to be taken
out it is as hard us stone. If Indians, Af
ricans or other savatres are to appear in a
group their li.-htly clad bodies are cast in
plaster, panted over with tbe colorof their
Bnt to return to wax work proper. Pres
ident Lincoln's body, we sec, is beimr re
produced in carton ns rapidly as the lively
plump Frenchwoman to whom the work
is intrusted c:;n fret the paper and linen
into the mold. The mold of the head
meanwhile p oos to the room cf the wax
worker or cirier, as ho is called, for the
French produce the cleverest work in this
line. Here it is filled with hot wax, and
when the wax nearest the outride has
cooled and hardened, clinging to the inner
side of the mold, the rest, still warm, is
poured off, so that the wax head is hollow
when it is taken out of the mold.
It would be difficult at this stupe to dis
cover much resemblance to President Lin
coln, for the head hairless, eyeless and
colorless looks exewdinely cha-stlv. It
is row that the cirier must show his skill,
and put the appearance of life into this
eorpselilje face. His tools are of the sim
plest a spatula and some blunted needles
set in small pieces of wood or matches
but with these he works wonders. Ilair
and beard, eyelashes and eyebrows are first
put on, a mast laborious task, for in a care
fully and well made bead each individual
hair is pushed into the wax with the
After this a hole is punched through
each eye and a ball, set on tbe end of a
curved rod so that it will pass into the
head from below, is heated and pressed
against the eye from the inside. This pro
duces a hollow into which glass eyes are
et. Finally the heated spatula is nsed to
trace wrinkles aud crow's feet, produce
pimples, and the cracks in the lips, and to
form teeth and toncue if the mouth ap
pears half open. The pores in the skin are
produced by drawing lines on the face
across each other by means of a number of
blunt needles set in a wooden handle. The
shaven portions of the face are well indi
sated by dotu of color pushed in with tbe
needle, while for a bristly Leurd of recent
growth short hairs are used. Lastly the
lips are covered with colored wax, teeth,
tongue and linger nails being indicated in
the same way.
So we nee that there is work enough in
the mere making of a wax figure, and that
the work increases in proportion as more
care aud arusticskill is employed. Furth
ermore, when a large group is to be made
like that of Columbus liefore Ferdinand
and Isabella at the Eden Mufiee the com
position (tiiat is the relative position of the
various figures), has to bo carefully con
sidered. For this purpose pencil sketches
are first made, and these are usually re
peated in a clay sketch, that is, a small
bas-relief in clay. This, though rough in
execution, "blocked out" as the sculptor
says. nevertheless gives the artist a good
idea of the arrangement and general effect
of the group. Only then, after careful con
sideration, U the modeling of the figures
When the fjsrnres are finished there is
still enough to be done. The figures must
be dressttd, furniture and other accessories
must be selected and placed with care, the
background prepared, the matter of effect
ive lighting carefully considered, and with
all this the arrangement and color effect
of the whole must be always kept in view.
The matter of clothes presents not a few
difficulties, even in figures of modern peo
ple. Fashious clumge rapidly, aud to be
correct Lincoln must be dressed in the
particular style of loose coat and baggy
trousers which was worn while he was
president, nor wouid it do to put the Vir
ginia militiamen who are guarding John
Brown on bis way to execution into the
nniform of a United States regular of to
day. But such costumes are not always
easy to get. and foreign uniforms, even of
the present time, are usually made in Eu
rope and imported. And even then errors
will creep in. For that group of the Em
peror William II of Germany, his wife the
empress, aud the little crown prince, the
uniforms were made by the emperor's own
tailor the bofachneider. And then there
are all those paraphernalia belts, sashes,
apaaleta, ornaments, decorations, medals
and all aorta of trappings which are also
generally- bought abroad, so as to make
sure that they are correct. New York
