Reborn Baby Dolls
Reborn art involves making dolls look like real life babies.
Deborah King is the reborn artist behind reborn-baby and she specialises in this art.
Now for the first baby of the new year, a bambino named Lana. She is a real cute reborn with an extra special cheeky look.
You could fool me with this doll!
This is Baby Lana
The process of reborning a doll is being able to create as realistic baby as possible.
This is achieved by firstly buying or creating a doll mould to start the reborning process. It is then neccessary to begin colouring the dolls head, body and limbs through a variety of different techniques to give a very realistic human skin effect.

This is Baby Summer
Look at the hands detail
This takes multiple layers of different paints to create mottled effects such as that of a newborn baby. We also add veins and other methods to add that real lifelike quality effect.
The babies arrive at customers weighted and stuffed to feel very cuddly and similar to that of a baby. The arms, legs and head are also weighted to give each doll a comparable baby weight.
For the doll to have realistic hair our prefered option is to root the head and eyelashes with high quality coloured mohair.
The rooting process is achieved by using a special needle which locks each individual strand of hair into the vinyl doll body. This is done strand by strand and can take days, patience is essential.
The baby dolls hands and feet are also coloured, their tiny nails have been manicured and varnished to give a nice gloss finish. Our dolls come with both open and closed eyes. The nostrils are also opened so the baby can breathe and also gives a lifelike baby finish.
Other ideas can be added such as heartbeat, magnetic dummy and magnetic hair ribbon depending on our customers specifications. To finalise the creation the new lovely baby is dressed in quality baby clothes and boxed in a nice package ready for a new home.
