I thought it would be fitting to create a custom doll of the Duchess of Cambridge, in light of the royal baby's arrival.

The doll started out as Franklin Mint's 16-inch Kate Middleton production doll. Full facial repaint and hair restyle went into the makeover process.

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
