Cher Doll Repaint by noeling Cher Doll Repaint by noeling

Yet another custom repaint of Mattel's Cher celebrity doll. This doll started out as the 2001 first ever released 11 1/2 inch Barbie-sized Cher dressed in a lavender gown originally designed by Bob Mackie.

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 signature look.

The doll's hair has been also been painstakingly reworked. I gave it a trim and then thinned down the thickness of the doll's hair by running the scissors along the length of the hair. This was done to achieve a more realistic scale in miniature. Her bangs also underwent restyling - it was heat set so that is sits flat on her forehead.

The inset photo on the bottom middle 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
