This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by Audrey Hepburn's stunning portrayal of Eliza Doolittle from the Oscar-winning musical "My Fair Lady"

I used a 12-inch Mattel Audrey Hepburn doll (see photos) . I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted it to more faithfully replicate Ms. Hepburn as Eliza. The doll's hair undergone painstaking transformation to faithfully capture the character's look the Embassy ball scene of the movie.

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

Can't say that I liked MY FAIR LADY: slow moving, with dull characters and very bad musical numbers.:( (Sad) 
Its only good feature was Hepburn's beauty.

Que genialidad, esto si que es tener un talento único!!
Cuando veía las figuras pensaba que eran de tamaño natural, nunca pensé que algo tan perfecto, detallado y delicado pudiera medir solo unos pocos centímetros.
Usted tiene un talento inhumano y honorifica a las celebridades que representa.
