finished re-rooting Sindy.

I actually finished her a few days after the last post but have only just got round to posting the pictures.

I'm quite pleased with the result but if you are attempting to do a similar thing i.e make a doll that was blonde a brunette, I recommend painting her head a darker colour first. As the light colour of her scalp shows through the hair as you can see in this picture.

My next project will be the pedigree Sindy pictured below in the horse and cart who I will probably restore as a blonde as she is an older doll and it will be nice to restore her to how she used to look.

This is interesting. My sister had Sindy and I had tressy

I used to work with a girl whose mother collected dolls, the house was full of glass display cases. She even had Princess Diana in her wedding coach. They were incredible.
