Thanks shirleys.

There is another one that had all kinds of general help for dolls.  Hopefully archived someplace.  I'll look around later.

Thank you, Tiny, for the tidbits of info on the dyeing.  I have a #6 PT that I went on ahead and stuck her head in the CLR.  Didn't seem to hurt her hair or make-up either.  Still has the shadow of the green though.

 

You were asking about a green ear thread?  I thought I remembered where it was, but let me have a quick look and I'll let you know.

Hi Shirlys,  how ya doing?

 

I still use the old stuff with no problems. 

 

I had found an old Francie doll in a box of old doll clothes a while back..  She had horrific green ear, and was "yellowing" out also in her face.  Beautiful brunette hair.

I don't do Barbie, and I DO NOT suggest someone do this,  unless it's a very last resort,  but I popped off her head and put the whole head in a cup of CLR.  Took a week or so, but the green ear was like a 5 o'clock shadow.   They say some Barbies de-green better than others.  I read that here.  Where oh where is that thread about fixing Barbies?

 

I dye dipped her head in a little bit of tan or peach dye, and she looks great.  She didn't go bald, and her face paint was not harmed.   A LITTLE bit of dye in hot water for a couple of seconds.  Keep in mind it dries alot darker.

I've dye dipped a couple of Revlons also. Their arms and legs on the bigger ones seem to fade out sometimes.   Only problem is the dye fades out after awhile and you may have to do it again. Or I play around with a trashed doll and race-reassign them with dye.  Hubby says I really need help,  and to just throw the doll out. LOL.

I still have a bottle of the old CLR.  I haven't used it in a while but was wondering if it would be OK to use?

She is really nice.  Love those fashion dolls.  I have used CLR on green ear on my Revlons with much success.  Keep applying with a Q-tip. Inside and out, if you can remove her head easily.  The Little Miss Revlon heads pop right off.

If you have the older CLR formula, it works faster and better.  The "new and improved" bottles with the world globe on it, takes longer to work.

"I'm Almost Human!"  says the ribbon.  Circle P only mark.  Little Miss Revlon lookalike

What I love about her

- Quality is good.  Comparable to LMR

- I don't think this one has ever been played with - not even handled much.  Her hair net is still on!! 

- That stunning platinum updo

- She came in a nice case (but the lid has torn off due to age)

- The flaw - those earrings had been in there ALL this time.  Removed immediately when I got her.  Bad green ear which I am working on - slowly and carefully.

tackygoods,

Anthros are new to me.  Cute.  Do you buy them blank and then airbrush them?

Finally found my Muffie.  Poor little thing was packed away, I had no idea where she was.  Lo and behold there she was in a tote with my Mom's old china.

 

Any ideas on how to fix her frizzy flyaway hair?

Yes, Misty is roughly the same size as Barbie.  Not quite as curvy though.

Thanks so much!  Hubby had an itsy bitsy teensy weensy stroke, or TIA as they call it right around the time we started escrow on a desert condo.  Owner of desert condo died during escrow so we had to get involved in a looooooong probate.  Those two issues kept me from my beloved doll board and beloved doll boardies.  I missed you all too!....terri
