My advice is to paint the re-assembled doll with gesso first, but you can try acrylics right away if you like. I use several thin coats of beiges, browns, even black, to create an aged effect.

I prefer to remove all or most of the original doll hair—it's usually quite unkempt on the second-hand dolls I use, anyway. Then I paint the hair area, let dry, and construct a headpiece of fabric flowers, faux jewels, butterflies, seashells, or feathers. I adhere those elements securely.
