as a bit of a surprise as I wasn't expecting him so soon, but I had the girls to help, giving lots of moral support and helping retrieve things that I needed. My sweet gorgeous boy is really a doll! Yep he's a "reborn doll". I had to wait patiently for his kit to arrive, which consisted of: head, arms, legs and arms. These all needed to be painted in many layers of paint to achieve the look I wanted. Once I had completed his little veins, wrinkles, blushing and mottling I had to add his eyes and eyelashes. Then I got to weight him and put everything together on his body. He came together so easily, and I was way to impatient to put hair on him. I just wanted him completed! He's about 19-20in long and has weighting in his head, arms and legs so he feels like a real baby. His tummy has some weight in it along with a powder sachet that makes him smell divine when hugging him! I also glossed his mouth, the corners of his eyes and this nostrils and nails.
Yep he's definitely part of the family now :)
Just another one of my many crafty persuits.
