This repaint, of a vinyl Ashton-Drake "Sunshine and Lollipops" by Dianna Effner marks the return of my painting lessons to the point where I began back in June 2014! This is the same doll that I first tried repainting (because, in my eyes, she is the least attractive factory paint job of all the Effner Ashton-Drakes and I felt I couldn't go anywhere but upwards if I tried painting her.) That first version I was really pleased with but now when I look back on it I cringe. So here's my second try ... much better! (And two years from now, will I cringe at this one and try it again? Probably not.) Not only am I better at painting detail now, but I've come a LONG way in being able to manipulate the rapid-drying, high gloss varnish that goes over the irises of the eyes, something I failed miserably with on the first Sunny - she had funny little clear bullet shaped projections on her eyeballs!
Sunny's vinyl Ashton-Drake head and upper torso are on resin ball jointed Tenner legs and lower torso. R.
