Sugar babe

 I found this keyring dolly for sale the other day.....with my very limited supplies here it is nice to know I can continue with my doll altering fetish:) Though I did notice yesterday that the dolls seem to have disappeared, hopefully they will re-appear as I could do with a couple more!

 So, after getting rid of the naff clothes and most of the hair I discovered that you can remove the painted on eyes etc with nail varnish remover and that the remaining hair can be pulled out with tweezers......it leaves a line of holes but that's no big deal!

 Then I set to painting and adding details with markers....I only have red, black and yellow but they are my favs so that's ok!
 Now she looks like this!!!

What a transformation, love your doodling with the markers and the colours work so well on this piece. Hope you are both well. Tracy x x
