I used a 16-inch Robert Tonner doll. I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted it to the likeness of the alluring Uma Thurman, as she looked in a recent issue of InStyle magazine Also, the doll's hair started out very curly so I had to cut, perm and restyle it.

The photo of Uma Thurman on the left was used as reference for the repaint.

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 . 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 Tonner Doll company
