Artist tells how he sculpts lifelike clay figurines of celebrities

A sculptor known simply as Jay recreates some of the world’s biggest stars using polymer clay. Through his Artisan Store studio, he makes small figurines of celebrities such as Lionel Messi, Chris Hemsworth, Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande and many more. Each piece contains an incredible level of detail rendered on a small scale; Jay conveys the fine facial features of these famous characters and gets so gritty that he sculpts strands of hair and seams of clothing.

Jay offers insight into his process through time-lapse videos. One popular piece is a sculpture by Khaby Lame, a Senegalese social media star known for his silent mockery of overly complex lifehack videos. To begin the artwork, Jay starts with a lump of clay, then uses sculpting tools to develop and articulate Lame’s features, including his signature smirk. After finishing Lame’s face, he then sculpts the body of the figure which includes another signature of the star: the way Lame holds his hands in his videos.
