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

(Note: I am not in any way affiliated with the Franklin Mint)

Maybe you should be the one to make dolls? Or at least be the one to paint their faces. Because you do way better than the original.

Companies don't do it as great because they mass produce them and it's cheaper.
