I'm thrilled to share my latest doll art. Cyndi Lauper was the 1980s wild child with her trademark neon makeup, bangles and colorful hair.

Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of Lauper as she looked in the 1980s

The inset photos show the transformation from mass produced version to finished repaint.

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 and an even greater challenge of recreating a real person's likeness. Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes
