Princess Diana custom doll repaint by Noel Cruz

Note: This doll has sold and is now in a private collection. Link below:…


Well, it has both been a relief and tremendous satisfaction to finally pay proper tribute to the People's Princess. I am pleased to share my latest creation created out of a Franklin Mint Princess Diana. It has been so much fun undertaking this project.

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 Franklin Mint company)

Your repaint is so much warmer and it really captures her kindness.  She is missed <3  Beautiful.  You should send a picture of this to William & Harry.
