Grace Kelly - of sophisticated allure and regal beauty - I just couldn't resist the chance of bringing her sultriness to life. I am pleased to share with you my latest creation.

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

Mattel should fire the people who do the doll faces and hire you instead. This is amazing! You probably have the most steady hands ever.

The original doll looks pretty compared to most original factory painted dolls I've seen, but of course your new paint job always win.

So incredible to see her transformation step-by-step. It's hard to do justice to the supreme elegance of Grace Kelly, but you have done an amazing job.

Hi, I just wanted to say that I've really admired your work since I've first seen it but I've really come to appreciate all the work and time you put in to the dolls since you started putting up the sequence shots. Keep up the amazing work!
