A couple of months back I tried my hand at 'reborning' a doll kit as an attempt to improve my painting skills. For those of you who don't know what reborning is, its the art of turning a doll or a doll kit into what looks and feels like a real baby. ( I personally find them a little bit creepy, but it was one of those things that I'd seen for sale on Ebay and wondered if I could do it to). For those of you who want to see the result of my reborning experiment please click here - I'm not putting photos of her on my gallery as she is not a piece that I sculpted, just vinyl doll parts that I painted, rooted and put together to make a completed doll.
Anyway, painting a reborn inspired me to sculpt a baby/ toddler of my own. She will have a soft body with sculpted arms and legs, and I would anticipate she will be around 14 inches long. Her hair is in the process of being attached and isn't styled yet.
I think she's kind of cute in a grumpy way!
