The work so far, looks like a botched plastic surgery at the moment, lots more to do including removing the bright red 'lippy' !

Just stripped it all back, smoothed and re painted, when the granddaughters come round I don't want them to have nightmares !  :o ;D

Still a bit stern looking but the faces are based on dolls of the same period, dressed in original silk gown !  getting clay and acrylics to stick to half damaged wax heads is a bit of a pain. Would you believe I'm missing the football to do this, shame  :24:

Same here! I'd far rather read a book or do crafts or paint. :)
Cheers!

Always wanted to restore old furniture, but need a garage and lots of space ( and money ! ) our place is far to small !

I so know that feeling, Keith. I have a small bedroom for my painting and crafts, the bigger stuff I have to take outside and put it on top of the storage bunker. 
Cheers!
