Below is a picture of a repair head I had to redo for a customer. Her 5 year old granddaughter lost the baby and when it was found the head looked light this. I’m so happy to have this finished so I can move on to some money makers. Anyone else had to do repairs? Show us your pictures. PS sorry to say but I think a dog or mouse chewed on the lips. Yuck!!
Wow! How did you smooth out the lips?
Dr Melanie to the rescue ! She looks amazing !
Definitely looks like a mouse chewed the lips and took a chunk right next to the lips! Great job fixing her, hair and paint! What did u use to fix her?
Amazing work Melanie…Is it the same head or did you have to do a new one???
All of y’all are so funny. I bought a new head. No way could I fix the mess done to the old one. I will admit my painting has significantly improved. Hated to have to reroot a new head. Maybe she’ll be more gentle with this one.
Notice the difference in color of hair? Believe it or not I used the same mohair. Luckily I had some left over from the original. Guess the dye came out.
LOL!! I thought you worked some Izzy magic on it! But, buying a new head is MUCH easier!
It reminds me of Alice’s @alicekay56 baby Jesus that had its nose eaten by a naughty dog.
I did notice the hair color difference but I thought it was a lighting “thing”.
Me too, i thought maybe the hair was wet so it made it look darker lol
Baby Jesus lolololololo:laughing:
Much better!! I’m sure she will be so happy!
That looks fantastic Mel!!
I seriously thought wow you’re great a repairing that vinyl lol and then read it’s a new head lol
Great Job! He is very handsome now
I got a message from my buyer that the doll her 10 yr. old daughter loves met with an accident, and could I fix it as she takes it to the hospital with her when she goes for treatment. I was lucky to be able to match the arm, and now baby is whole again. LOL
Wow, Diane! Love how you added those fingers! Just kidding!!! I’m on to you and Melanie now.
@AmyR777 I meant that I was lucky to find the spare part to make a new arm. LOL What do you expect before having your morning coffee.
LOL!!! I’m drinking it now.
