*~*Restorations*~*      

When I restore, I try to leave the doll as original as I possibly can. If the client wants her to be shiny, brand spanking new looking, I will do that, of course. Otherwise all restorations are done with a VERY light hand and retain that vintage 'handled a bit' look. I want them to look new, not restored.

***I DO NOT RESTORE GREEN EAR DUE TO THE VARIYING DEGREE OF RESULTS. I DO IT FOR MYSELF WITH CLR AND I'VE HAD BETTER RESULTS THAN WITH REMOVEZIT!  I ALSO DO NOT REPAIR MISSING DIGITS OR NOSE NIPS. HOWEVER, I WILL REPAIR EYELASH RIDGES. THIS IS A NEW SERVICE!***

*~* Final results that are guaranteed to be smooth and free of unattractive, clumpy brush strokes! *~*

         
BEFORE                                                AFTER
 
This doll is part of my personal collection.
The only touch up is to her lips.
As you can see in the before photo, she had all of her lips, they were just faded. I color washed them VERY little. Other than that, all paint work is original. I retied her pony tail, but did not wash her hair to do so. Also, I did not reset her hard curl because she has a LOT of her curl left in it.




 

BEFORE              AFTER

Doll was a bubblecut that I re-rooted to look like a Japanese Side Part American Girl.
She is a full re-root.

She has touch ups to her brows, lips, eye shadow and blush.

I sold this doll on eBay
 
This was a Challenge doll from my friend April in TX.

She has been rerooted, she is a full facial repaint and her eyelashes have been rerooted.
 

touch up to lips, eyelashes, blush and eyeshadow

Hair reset
  

This is probably THE prettiest #4 that I've ever restored. I have no control of what they are going to look like after I'm done. I just put them back to the way they were orignally.
This doll has new lips, lashes, blush and added eyeshadow

From the collection of Scott Arend
 

 Some kind of a wig had been glued to her head as you can see the glue residue on it still. I repainted her face, re-flocked, rerooted and reset her hair.
 

Formerly a #5 w/ a bad haircut and a lot of missing paint. I rerooted this doll to be a blonde swirl. She has new lips, brows, lashes and blush. I gave her cluster curls as the base of her ponytail for a dainty touch.



  

Lovely #4.. her ponytail has been retied. Hard curl has been reset and is a TRUE hard curl again. She has touch ups to her lips, lash ridges, eyeshadow and blush. She wears nylon safe pearl earrings.
     
A lovely #3 was hiding in this doll! A little bit of love and she's once again a beauty!
