12-21-09 Nancy - Here is your
Baby Girl with a shiny mouth and brand new
teeth. She also has her braids re-styloed
to her original. Green double satin
bows will go on the bows once we wash her
hair and make it smell real good. We
always style the braids BEFORE washing as
the thread in the wigs on these dolls are so
weakened, once washed and styled if still
wet. So we style the hair first. Her
eyes are not repaired yet but look good
above. They will be polished.
Our question is this: She has a green
scratch, green because the raw plastic is
green, so the paint is gone on her
forehead. We will go ahead and spritz
that spot with our "Air
Brush". While we are at it do you
want her eye shadow freshened and her cheek
blush? She is a bit pale. Let me
Below the 2 photos
show the eyes have been polished and the
lids have only the first coat of paint on
the sockets. The eye on the right has a lens
that was trying to fall out so we lightly
glued it top and bottom. The little
scratches are still on the whites but we do
not have the exact color of paint to match
here. Just shows the doll is an
expensive and real original doll, not to
mention cherished by her Mommy! The
orange will not show. It is stain from
the 50's glue that was used to glue the
lashes to the sockets.
12-26-09 - Hi Nancy below
is the finished body all original except for
the blushing on hands and knees. She
has been patched under her arm very
nicely. We did not paint it because we
wanted to leave her as original as
possible. Her eye lids were RE-PAINTED
by Dr. Hubby so it took some extra time to
dry. He did not like how I did them,
so now I have to admit they are perfect eye
lids. I want to go crawl into a hole.
HA! Her head is sitting here beside me
and I plan on putting her eyes in very
soon. Will let you know when I
do. I would like to put her green hair
bows in also. I think that is what we
decided. Tell me if I am wrong. She
walks like brand new. We will video
her walking when finished.
God Bless You!!
Keeping her body original, Dr. Hubby
reinforced the split on the inside.
Hubby repainted her eye lids to perfection.
Love the bright white teeth!
