Dust yourself off and try again...

So, after laughing every time I looked at my alien-anime-esk re-paint of the redheaded model #4...
I erased her entire face.

Just that step alone made her look better. 
(^_^) lol

If you don't remember her....let me refresh your memory...

Looks like someone tried to fill her head with helium.
We all float down here...

My first mistake was trying to go over her crap paint job so that I could achieve some sort of perfect result.
I generally have much better luck if I just create a blank canvas. 
Unless of course I am just enhancing a doll's already marvelous features. 
Obviously, this wasn't the case. 

All was NOT lost though...

Which is the entire point of this post. 

After making her a blank canvas, this happened....

Let us break that collage down...shall we? 

She looks like her name would be Katya or Veronica. 
I don't know why... 

She has been sold! Thank you all so much for the supremely sweet words!

Have a FABULOUS weekend!!

  1. She's cool in this way too! I'd love to make perfect repaint like yours!!

    1. Thank you so much Sergio! (^_^) I have a long way to go to be perfect, but that is sincerely sweet of you to say. *hugs*

  2. Gah! She's gorgeous! If I can scratch up enough moolah today, I might give in to temptaion!

    1. Thank you Verona!! She is already spoken for, but I will be doing more in the future. My next projects will involve the fellas. (^_^) I like making them all handsome! lol

  3. How you can do that I will never know.... I've tried and my doll looked like a monster in the end.... Anyways she looks amazing!

    1. Thank you! (^_^) It would seem that the more I do it the better the result. But I can't say I find it easier each time. Maybe one day I will, but that day just hasn't come yet. lol Again, thank you for the kind words and for stopping by!

  4. Hello from Spain: I see this Barbie with beautiful eyes. I think you do a great job with the paint. Keep in touch

  5. Cat, for your 1st repaint she didn't make me run so that's good in itself..LOL. Seriously bang up job. My 1st attempt was so bad I made her a vampire and then her face was erased..LOL
