Keira Knightley Repaint Doll by noeling Keira Knightley Repaint Doll by noeling

This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by the British actress Keira Knightley.

I used a 16-inch Elizabeth Swann doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company - a finely made facial sculpt but the facial paint was something I found quite unsatisfactory and which I felt did not really reflect the character portrayed by Keira nor captured her likeness.

So, I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted it to bring the likeness of Ms. Knightley to life. 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.

The inset photo 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

(Note: I am not in any way affiliated with the Tonner Doll company

I love it! You can tell who it's supposed to be even without looking at the title! You have completely blown me away.

The original definitely doesn't have the appropriate amount of pucker Keira Knightley tends to affect for photo opts.
