Hugh Jackman realistic life size sculpture as Wolverine, made from silicone, acrylic, hair, plastics and metal.

Wanting to capture his barely disguised anger as in the movies, once a pose was selected from various photographs, it was off to work.

First thing was to find enough reference photographs to get a good idea of his body shape, then build an armature from steel and aluminium on to which build up the clay form. Water based cay was used to quickly get the rough form, before several weeks spent on refining, specially the head.

Once completed the arms were detached for moulding, and moulds made from fibreglass. When these were cleaned and ready, silicone rubber was injected and left to cure. The castings were then taken out of the moulds, and any seams got rid of, before being painted with layers of translucent paint to build up the skin colouration.

Next, a number of hours spent implanting individual hair for his scalp, brows, lashes, chest and arms was carried out over the next few days.

With this done, he was assembled with an authentic Swiss vest top, and eyes and teeth made from acrylics inserted to finish him off.
