In the photos, Donny Osmond and Marie Osmond can be seen being measured by the Madame Tussauds studio team. This step of the process involves collecting hand impressions and nearly 300 precise body and facial measurements per person, as well as comparing hair samples and eye color. For measuring, calipers are utilized to ensure accuracy.

Now that the measuring is complete, their figures are currently being sculpted and perfected in clay by hand. Once this step is complete, the clay will be covered by a plaster cast. Once the plaster is cooled, the clay will be removed from the casts, leaving the shape of the figures in plaster.

The final weeks of 2015 will be spent meticulously inserting each hair by hand then fitted with acrylic eyes and teeth. The final step will include countless layers of tinted paint being applied to build up skin tones and replicate their faces.
