My most recent 11 1/2 inch Cher doll repaint. The base doll used was Mattel's Timeless Treasures Bob Mackie Cher. This version features hairstyle with no bangs.

Complete removal of original paint then given a full facial repaint as well as a rework of the hair to replicate the pop icon. Note that hairline was also handpainted to add a more realistic appearance.

The inset photo on the bottom shows the doll as it looked originally before repainting.

Repaint is a new form of pop art, wherein the doll's face is treated like a three dimensional canvas, with the added challenge of painting within a very small area . Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

They should hire people like you, with real talent, to make this dolls, instead of a fucking machine. But yeah that will be more expensive so they won't -.-

Okay, that's creepy-good! When I saw the thumbnail I thought you had pictures of Cher as reference and that the "before" picture in the center was the completed doll!

That's just awesome. All my thumbs up!
