I did it -- my first Monster High repaint!


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.

  • Here's my second repaint... try as I may, I could only get one good picture of her.  My new camera and I are not friends, yet.   She's wearing a 8" Madeline doll dress!

      she does have a real expression , and she does look a bit more mature than the first one. I am totally amaze by your talent Tilly !! bravo 

    • Oh Tilly, she's got the most adorable face. Are you really aware of what you'll be able to achieve?!! I mean... this is your second re-paint!!! You're naturally talented my dear!! Just loved them both. Congratulations.

      I totally agree

    • Thank you, Isabel... with practice I hope to get better and develop some of my own techniques.  I would like to learn how to create expression with  the repaint... to make a sad face or quizzical face on demand.  I may need a couple hundred monster dolls for starters... :)
