Vinyl"Mama" Baby Repair

                            Popular "mama" doll of the 50's..early 60's...One of the many types
                    of damage that can occur to these vinyl dolls. I reinforced the tear with muslin
                    permeated with silicone...Then applied thin layer upon thin layer of "Liquid
                     Sculpey"...heating the vinyl ( EVER SO CAREFULLY) between applications.
                     Tear is still mildly visible but the repair is cosmetically acceptable and very
                    strong....Her momma is pleased ( and so am I)
