Audrey Hepburn My Fair Lady doll repaint steps by noeling Audrey Hepburn My Fair Lady doll repaint steps by noeling
THIS DOLL HAS SOLD AND NOW RESIDES IN A PRIVATE COLLECTION.

This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by Audrey Hepburn's stunning portrayal of Eliza Doolittle from the Oscar-winning musical "My Fair Lady"

I used a 12-inch Mattel Audrey Hepburn doll (see photos) . I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted it to more faithfully replicate Ms. Hepburn as Eliza. The doll's hair undergone painstaking transformation to faithfully capture the character's look the Embassy ball scene of the movie.

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

Thank you for the inspiration! I have this exact doll- makes me want to do some practice and then take a stab at repainting her eventually so she looks even more amazing.
You should totally (attempt) to do some tutorials, or video yourself working on a doll so people can see more of the process. I'm always so curious to see how artists work and get tips. =)
Well done!

what blows my mind is how so many of these faces are prolly pretty generic, and yet with the right paint job, you manage to somehow make them look perfect!!
