As with many of you, Michael Jackson's sudden death was a devastating loss. I adore his music and artistry and have collected his albums through the years. Incidentally, I also collected a few 12-inch Michael Jackson dolls. As a tribute to his legacy, I have decided to transform one of them into Michael Jackson's look in his "Black or White" musical performance. His song "Black or White" sends a very powerful message about embracing racial diversity and I thought that I would create a doll befitting of his iconic image.

The doll underwent extensive hairstyling and partial hair rerooting, as the the doll originally had hair only along the hairline. Next, was to transform the doll's face to capture Jackson's essence particularly from the "Black or White" video.

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

The difference between the original doll and the repainted one are so dramatic. You have taken a plastic model of Michael Jackson and made a replica of the King of Pop.

wow you only used acrylic paint to re-paint this doll? I'm thinking of buying a cheap one and re-painting it and wondered if the paint would crust off? or if u added any kind of sealant to it? :)

Why do you believe that? Because the media tells you to? Are you even aware that there was never any real proof besides the words of a kid whos mother was KNOWN for extorting money from celebrities??

It really pisses me off when people who do NOT do their own research think they have a right to judge others, especially people they haven't even met.

I bet you also believe video games raises killers and pit bulls are naturally human-aggressive.

You are the REALLY messed up one here.

You did an excellent job on this one :heart: But...so...the original doll you re-painted was supposed to be MJ already? Your version is so much better...And I love that song - it came from one of my favorite albums :love: All of your re-paints always look so great, but this one...this one is like he's actually there! I mean...almost.


And wow! It almost went for $1000!! Congratulations :hug: If I had money to spend on art like that, I would've paid more - it'd be worth it.
