Australian One Direction fans do not need to worry about leaving lipstick marks on the British boyband's wax statues to be displayed at Madame Tussauds wax museum in Sydney.

Kitty Brennan, from Madame Tussauds Sydney, says: "We have many tricks and means of removing lipstick!"

According to a report in The Straits Times Communities, the statues, which took 4000 hours and US$1.2 million ($1.4 million) to make, are made from real Japanese bees wax.

This material is very strong, due to the fact that the visitors are allowed to touch the figures.

The process of making the wax figures is an intricate one, employing the work of 60 artists and needing over 500 measurements and photos.

Of course, the statues will be receiving star treatment, with daily - or even hourly - touch ups to make sure they're all perfect. Sydney is the third stop for the statues, as part of thier 'world tour'.

The statues will be displayed at Madame Tussauds wax museum in Sydney from Oct 24, 2013 to Jan 28, 2014.
