Baby's Beginnings Image

This beautiful little baby girl started out as a sculpt called "Luca" by the reborn artist Ellie Knoops and has been reborn by me into this amazingly lifelike little baby girl. All of my babies here at “Baby Kisses Nursery” are created with a lot of time and love. I spent many hours on Tessa's painting and I am so pleased with the way she turned out. She has multi-dimensional skin tones that are very realistic. This baby wears size 0 to 3 month and some size newborn clothing which makes shopping for her a lot of fun. She is now a beautiful hand crafted collectable heirloom doll that can be passed down for many generations and is not recommended for very young children.

Baby's Skin Image

 I first gave Tessa a warm bubble bath to remove any factory residue from her skin and then began the long process of bringing her to life. She has very life like skin tones that were achieved by applying many translucent layers of Genesis heat set paints. These paints are permanent and won't rub off over time. She has a beautiful complexion with tiny delicate capillaries and subtle veins. Her mouth has been painted a natural color and then sealed with a permanent clear gloss to give it a moist wet look. I applied a touch of gloss to her eye area, mouth and the inside of her nose to give them a natural moist look.

Baby's Eyes Image

Tessa has beautiful dark brown eyes and wispy baby eyelashes. Her eyebrows have been lightly painted on one stroke at a time in a color to match her hair.

Fingers and Toes Image

All of Lydia's cute little fingers and toe nails have been painted, tipped in a off-white and then sealed for protection. They now have that fresh clipped baby look.

Baby's Body Image

Lydia has a jointed soft fabric body made just for her. She has been weighted with fine glass beads, tiny metal beads enclosed in a bag and soft poly fibre fill so she now has the feel and weight of a real baby when held. Her little head can be gently turned from side to side and is slightly floppy so it will need to be supported just like a real baby. She has a magnet in her head for her hair bow and care should be taken around people with pacemakers and certain electronics.

Baby's Hair Image

Tessa's hair has been finely rooted with dark brown soft premium angora mohair.  I use a very tiny needle and this takes several days to complete but I feel the results are well worth it. Her hair is so soft and fine and feels just like a real baby's hair. It has been sealed on the inside with a waterproof glue so you can now gently style it with a little water or baby spray detangler.
