Making “Hannah” the reborn baby girl

Here is Hannah from start to finish as I created her. I fired her Genesis Heat set paints several times as I applied layers of colors and texture to her skin. I was amazed as she came to life with each subsequent firing. Tiny,individual hairs were rooted into the scalp. She has a small bald spot where her hair has rubbed off , just like a real baby! Delicate eyelashes and fingernails are the finishing touches for this darling. href=””>baby with eyelashes finished

Making my first Reborn Baby Doll

Baby second firing

My granddaughter Brianna introduced me to the art of “Reborning” this summer. She had received a beautiful preemie baby ” Willow” for her birthday  and when I saw the little darling, I fell in love!  She was the most realistic doll I had ever seen. I’ve been a doll artists since 1991 and have been making one of a kind artist dolls using polymer clay. I was so enamored by this baby that we immediately started looking on the internet for more information. This is the story of my first Reborn baby!
