Introducing Baby Pia

This is baby Pia, she has been reborn from a gorgeous sculpt "Lacey" by the very talented Shawna Clymer, I have spent many days creating a delicate young baby skin by using incredibly thin layers of Genesis Heatset Paints, each layer carefully oven cured to make sure it has set.

Great attention has been paid to the detail of this baby, she has had every crease and crevice of her body painted.

I used a very fine need to micro root her hair with ultra mohair in black. Her hair has then been sealed inside with a waterproof sealant that allows the new owner to dampen and restyle Pia's hair.

Pia has been weighted with a mixture of poly pellets and glass beads and that squidgy baby feel is achieved by the use of "baby fat" and polyester fibre fill. Because Pia's limbs and head are weighted she has the feel of a real baby and requires support to her head and limbs just like a real baby would do.

Reborning is an incredibly time consuming art, it's a real labour of love to create these amazing life like baby dolls.

If you would like to have a go at reborning please visit my website for kits and supplies And a wonderful resource for more information about reborning is RBUK a friendly welcome community of UK reborn artists and doll collectors.
