#5 in my ♥ Smokey Eye Collection ♥ series

Unless Mattel decided to release a new Toralei, this will be my
last Toralei repaint for A LONG TIME, as she's always been VHTF (Very hard to find) & she's no longer available in stores.

Can't seem to do a Toralei without freckles, must be the hair. ♥

Hair marks removed
Hair restyled & cut a bit
Cat ears removed
Pierced ears (just below hairline to simulate ears)
Original hands replaced & painted black
Tube slip on dress (sewn in sewing machine but makeshift still) by Me
Vest by MGA
Shoes by Mattel MH recustomized by Me
Accesories by (Bracelet by Mattel MH) & (Earrings by Me)

how do you strip off the original paint without harming the plastic/resin?

I use regular 100% acetone nail polish remover for Tonner dolls eyes & lips, I use cotton swabs, after it's removed, I use a non acetone nail polish remover for the whole face & I treat the face with a mix of baking soda & powder, let it sit for 5 minutes or so & wash it off. You can also buy alcohol pads & clean the face with them afterwards.
For Monster High I use non acetone nail polish remover, most of them smell pretty bad & leave a residue, so you have to rinse the face afterwards anyway, the same way as a Tonner doll. You can also use a dremel to remove the paint if you're good with one. For Abbey Bominable, I use 100% acetone because of the glitter & it doesn't damage the vinyl at all.
Hope this helps. ♥

I LOVE how you do Toralei. Her freckles, her lips, everything. And so far I think this smokey eye collection has some of my favorite work from you yet!

Also I just wanted to let you know, if you weren't aware, they are releasing a new Toralei, as the villain in the new Power Ghouls line. Her name will be Cat Tastrophe, and she will have long hair this time ;)

Oh kool beans, I don't know if I'll be painting as much by the time she gets released :( & I am sure those scalpers will clean out the
stores to sell her on Ebay, I was only lucky enough to find her once at the store after stopping at several stores early in the morning, wasn't worth it after driving for so long from store to store, gas & time, so I just never did that again.

Anyway, well thank you so much for your compliments, they're always appreciated. :hug: I am glad you like my smokey eye collection cause I
am really enjoying creating the collection. ♥
