El Diablo Inc. creates life-size, realistic, human figures, using an underlying metal armature, based on the human skeleton. This armature allows each figure the advantage of being poseable and adaptable to a number of different positions.
The heads of the figures are painted, and cast in fiberglass, plastic polymer, or lifelike silicone. Each head includes:
The hands are poseable when made of urethane or silicone, or can be cast into a fixed position using a hard polymer. Check out our Gallery section to view samples of previous work including Saddam Hussein, Al Capone, and Edgar J. Hoover.
Producing a realistic figure takes many years of experience and experimentation. Creating the head involves the following steps:
Look-a-like heads are also available (i.e. replicas of historic figures, celebrities, etc.). In this case, the subject is sculpted out of clay using photographs, and a mold is subsequently made from this clay head.
Manufactured in North America
All El Diablo's museum figures are fabricated with North American labour and materials.
