Yet another Cher-inspired creation. This year's custom Cher repaint is based upon her look in her latest film "Burlesque". The base doll used was Mattel's 11 1/2 inch "If I Could Turn Back Time" Cher doll.

So , as I always do, I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted the doll to create a faithful replica of Cher's features particularly inspired by her look in her 1980s music video "If I Could Turn Back Time".

The doll's hair has been also been meticulosuly reworked with heat straightening, cut and style. I also delicatley paint enhanced the hair line for added realism.

The inset photo on the bottom right 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
