The Phantom

Claude Rains as the doomed violinist Eric Claudin from the 1943 classic horror film The Phantom of the Opera. This film was a Technicolor remake of the classic silent B&W original version in 1925 with Lon Chaney. Although not seen until briefly at the end, the acid burn scars were a startling make-up by Jack Pierce. I really enjoyed trying to capture this hideous scaring as well as the horror and rage Rains displayed when he was unmasked! The mask is removable so the bust can be displayed with the mask on or off. 1/4 scale, solid resin, released in 2022.
