Wizard of Oz is a timeless classic and its magic transcends the generations. So I thought that it would be exciting to create the leading character, Dorothy.

The doll used is a 15 1/2 inch doll by Robert Tonner. Full facial repaint and shading as well as hair style make over to replicate the features of the young Judy Garland in her iconic portrayal of Dorothy.

The inset photo on the bottom show the mass produced version of the doll as it was originally released.

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
