Mattel Cher doll repaint by noeling Mattel Cher doll repaint by noeling
FOR MORE OF MY ART, PLEASE VISIT MY WEB SITE AT
WWW. NCRUZ.COM . Link below:

[link]

My most recent 11 1/2 inch Cher doll repaint. The base doll used was a version produced by Mattel.

Complete removal of original paint then given a full facial repaint as well as a rework of the hair to replicate a live version of Cher's "If I Could Turn Back Time". Note that hairline was also handpainted to add a more realistic appearance.

The inset photo on the bottom right 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 Mattel.)

I absolutely love how you add the hairlines to your dolls. It's a small detail in the scheme of things, but it's so profound in completing the likenesses and realism, so many times.

That is, hands-down, the most ridiculously awesome piece of art I've ever seen. You took it from bad-perm Barbie to honest-to-god Cher! I love the unexpected form of art you've taken up, it's great!
