Voit paper mache back - restored view - Dollsmith Doll Restoration Services

Back patched, new sculpted sections, head crack cleaned and filled. Custom color and varnish sheen match to original paint at nape of neck. Hair color matched for small crack. I preserve as much of the original paint and varnish as possible which is why the custom colorization is so critical. I really detest all over "repaint" spray color on these wonderful old antiquities and so "paint-in-between" original sections to match the new with the old. It's more special effects refinishing than just a new paint job. The restored dolls look like themselves, just "repaired".
