In this photo (released Wednesday), Madame Tussauds senior sculptor Colin Jackson touches up the clay mold of her figure's head. When complete, Michelle's figure will join her husband Barack Obama's wax figure, which was unveiled in February 2008, in a replica of the Oval Office.
Obama is the third first lady to be immortalized in wax by Madame Tussauds Washington D.C., joining Jacqueline Kennedy and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
