I've been trying my hand at restoring a couple of dolls. This one is 36 years old and has had a rough life. Many children have played with her and a dog chewed off one foot! For years she has been discarded in various toy boxes and I retrieved it a while ago - don't ask me why! Anyway, I've made another foot with clay and painted it with acrylic paint and a matt Mod Podge, so hopefully it will stay in place! I recoloured the lips and Mod podged them. I replaced the blinking eyes with plastic ones backed up with clay, and to take the staring look off them, the glasses did the trick! I made her a gymfrock so she could look like a little student! She's waiting for new shoes and I'm about to make her a little suitcase for her schoolbooks! My daughter, who was the original owner, named her Lesley, and now she wants her back!
