The location where he is positioned is not secret service-secure to protect him from those who bustle into my doll room without regard to the dolls positioned at the entrance atop boxed dolls. He also was not supported by a doll stand. As a result, my TrueType African American figure molded in the likeness of President Obama has fallen or been knocked down on numerous occasions.
His last fall occurred several weeks ago causing a paint scrape to his forehead. "Dang," I thought... "that daughter of mine!" But who knew these figures were painted and such injuries would occur with a simple fall onto a carpeted floor? "Oh well... I'll fix him soon," I thought again.
Finally I did. To avoid mixing paint to match his manufactured, painted complexion, I used a combination of face powder and concealers. I applied the concealers first and sealed with powdered make-up using a make-up sponge.
