Broken Fingers and Toes

It is rare to find a doll that has been well played with that will not have at least one missing digit. I rebuild and match these to  the rest of the body.

Broken and Frayed sockets

Just like us, a dolls joints wear over time, which can also be caused from over tight stringing.

I will mend any splits, rebuild the area around the socket, make a new one or replace it and repaint or match the rest of the body.

Split and Broken body

Sometimes a body has whole areas that have split or have serious damage. Large dents are not unusual. These will be cleaned for repair, rebuilt and remodelled, using appropriate materials and repainted to match the rest of the body.
