I did it and I'm pretty happy overall. I learned a lot and now I'm ready to truly try my hand at repainting... this first one really is a huge learning curve. There's so many things I will do differently the next time and... well... the next time is the real test. Can I duplicate this or was it beginners luck? I need a few supplies; can't believe I don't have any white acrylic paint! I had to use a cream color for the white... this was great fun, a little nerve wrecking and from start to finish took me about 3 hours. I really tried to take my time and to pause and think about what I wanted to do next... a couple times I went to the computer and watched a repaint video because I was unsure of myself.
The pictures include the before and after and my sketch for the repaint before I started... next is sewing some clothes for this doll and thinking about the other one I have to paint.
