Celine Dion custom doll art by noeling Celine Dion custom doll art by noeling

This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by world class singer Celine Dion.

I used a 16-inch Elizabeth Swann doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company. Upon close inspection of the doll's facial features, Celine Dion came to mind.

So, I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted it to bring the likeness of Ms. Dion to life. Extensive paint contouring technique had to be employed to replicate Celine's features.

The doll's hair has been partially rerooted with additional hair as some of the areas were sparsely rooted. Then I gave her hair a soft perm for just some very subtle waves just like Celine's.

The inset photo shows the doll before transformation.

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. Another equally challenging feat especially when recreating a likeness is to work within the limits of an existing doll's facial mold.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

It's ironic that I clicked on this RIGHT as Celine Dion came on the radio.
