It is my belief that many years ago people took it upon themselves to repaint Izannahs perhaps to give to a child because they really could not afford a new doll....or perhaps they thought with all the paint loss and crackling that it would look better with a fresh new look..........or perhaps they wanted to pass down an old timeworn doll to a family member. In any event, Please do not over paint an Izannah Walker doll. They are so charming and wonderful just left as they are and they truly tell their own story by the love and wear that they have on their faces and bodies............after all, dolls were and are to be played with and loved for what they are.
