Here's that 'ugly' looking doll that was all in pieces. She has a happy little smile on her face because she know how pretty she looks now.
Her metal eyes were the only thing I didn't need to touch...they are a beautiful painted blue. The rest of her was completely resurfaced and are painted.
She was sanded down and additional layers were applied. After each layer, she is sanded, checked for additional flaws. This is her final layer of resurfacing (I hope). She will be sanded again andthen the painting starts.
Once the body was glued together, the resurfacing begins.
Close up of face
Here she is. She is wearing her temporary wig, couldn't have the lady bald. I will be making her wig out of mohair and then on to her clothes.
She now has her first layer of resurfacing. Most of her composition was loose and had heavy lifting.
This was the side of her face....There must have been mositure that got under she compo, because with very little effort chunks came off. Once all this stuff came off, she had to dry out so the new resurfacing would stick to the old compo.
