I’ve had some questions about making reborn dolls by many who would like to start to learn a new art form. I’ve been making dolls for many years and I love sharing some tips that I’ve learned along the way.
I have a few dolls I’m working on so I will try to share as many basic tips as I can. I hope you do start a new art form or hobby. It’s nice to let it some creative steam.
You’ll find my finished dolls on my Instagram page under @punkiepiebabies
I will be hand making dresses and will be adding some details for some special babies. I’m pouring all my creative skills into the next few dolls. I’ll record as much as I can to share with you.
My site has always been a mixed bag of my interests from trying new recipes, gardening, painting, sculpting, sewing.. I felt it is time to just show everything I can do and share when creating my special dolls of 2020. If you’re new to this, I create realistic looking baby dolls for medical, mental therapy and collecting purposes. All my dolls take weeks to months to complete and I only use top quality products and supplies. All hair is rooted into the dolls head and lashes one hair at a time. I also do something called micro directional hair rooting. This means I root the hair in a pattern of a swirl into the crown of the doll head one hair at a time. I practice and try different techniques all the time. I think that’s why I enjoy making these dolls so much. There is no one way to make these dolls. I urge anyone who is interested to try it. I’ll share more soon
