This February mid-term we will launch a brand new addition to the museum in the form of our Wax Master 5,000. The Wax Master along with the assistance of our wonderful wax workers will allow visitors the chance to have a copy of their very own hand immortalised in wax to take home & keep.
The “Wax Master 5,000” machine consists of 2 basins of cold water, a large pot of hot silicon wax and 6 smaller pots of hot coloured wax.
Essentially it is a dipping process where the customer firstly selects the hands pose then dips the hand into the cold water. This is followed by a dip into the hot wax after which a staff member wipes off the excess wax and repeats the process 4 times. An air pocket is created between the hand and the wax allowing it to be slipped off giving a cast of the hand. Then the visitor can then choose to have the hand coloured with the array of vibrant colours available.
