Restoration of an Animal Troll

This is an underside photo of a large Dam donkey, severely marked and with rotting hair, before restoration.

This is the underside photo of the same troll, after ink-removal treatment and with mane & tail replacement. "Vee have vays of making zee schribbles go kaput . . ."




He is one Dam handsome donkey!

Oh, I have been looking for some more info about my dam thing donkey. I have had mine since 1964 when I turned 14. How much are they worth now?
You can see mine at http://debbma.multiply.com/journal/item/80
And how much to restore his mane and tail?

As are all of the troll animals, your baby is ADORABLE! At this time, the Dam donkey is selling for between $100 and $200 on eBay.

I am now an over-the-road trucker and have very little time to restore trolls. Look up "terrelltimm" on eBay - he does custom restoration.

Can you tell me what chemical combination you used for the ink removal... some come right off with rubbing alcohol, some need non-acetone nail polish remover... what did you use in this case? Thanks, C

I posted the process of ink removal on the Yahoo Groups board called "DAMTHINGS". Although the donkey was prepped with alcohol, it is neither the alcohol or nail-polish remover that leaches out the ink.

You may be surprised . . .
