We have a case here of a master repainter making a silk purses out of a sows' ears. Forgive me for calling MH dolls sows' ears but they are cheaply made, fragile dolls. However, in the hands of Tan, they become jewel-like, precious creations.
Here are a few of his amazing OOAKs. Below you will find a link to his flickr photostream. It's highly recommended viewing!
