May 27, 2011 – House of Wax

Today is the day to add wax to the list of mixed media used in the 2011 Project. Considering that Vincent Price was born on this day 100 years ago, melted wax seems the right medium to drip and spread over the piece. In 1953, the House of Wax was the first 3D, color movie. My father took my brother and I to see it in the theatre during a re-release when I was about 10. It was the first 3D movie I ever saw. Normally, I would have been terrified, but I just remember being mesmerized by the 3D and waiting for the next effect. I really am not much for 3D movies, but the one that really did scare me was the Siegfried & Roy biopic in 3D.
