Bitty Baby Doll makeover!

I found these 2 lovelies at a thrift store for $1.99 each!  
They are American Girl Doll Bitty Baby twins

  As you can see both had some ink and glitter nail polish.  I CAREFULLY used non-acetone nail polish remover and got off most of the nail polish.  But there were still a LOT of ink marks!

 Someone tried to fix this blonde baby and wiped away her eyebrows and lip color in an attempt to repair the damage (before I found her).  She also has glitter polish and ink inside her mouth, YUK!

This little one had glitter nail polish and ink on her face, but her facial features were not harmed.
Luckily both doll's hair was in great shape!

 Both dolls had some 10% benzoyl peroxide on their ink spots and laid in the sun.

They both got a baking soda bath - careful to avoid those eyes!

After 2 treatments

 After three 10% benzoyl peroxide treatments laid in the sun
the ink is gone, sadly a slight discoloration remains, but not too noticeable.

 I mixed some acrylic paint as close to her skin color as possible and re-colored her lids.
I also painted on some blonde eyebrows. I lightened her lips a little after this photo.
Sadly, both dolls have some glitter that will not come off, but again, not too noticeable.



ADORABLE! If I do say so myself!
Another successful doll makeover!
These two are ready for someone to love them!

Before & After

Now what should we do with these two girls??

I'm glad to see you were able to rescue these two! The hair looks like it was in really good shape thank heavens. I would freak out if I saw someone torturing a doll like that, especially for as much as these cost.

Sophie and Brenda said...

Yes, me too! Their hair was in really good condition, that was a plus. I am just happy I found them. : )

They turned they so cute. I''m sure they would like to stay with you!

Sophie and Brenda said...

Thank you Sharon! I believe you are right, and the babies will have to stay with us. :)

Hi- the dolls look awesome! Do you have any tips on adding eyebrows to the bitty baby doll?

Brenda and Sophie said...

What I did was use a very small paint brush and tried to match the eyebrows on my other bitty baby. Using acrylics gives you a little time to wipe off and start again but you will need a sealer to finish
