A customer's childhood doll

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.
This little girl was a real mess when she arrived in my studio.  Step one was to clean everything.  Then to glues the body back together.
