About Patty Ann

What is a Reborn Baby? A Reborn Baby is a doll that is transformed into the most life-like baby doll ever. It begins with a basic vinyl or silicone doll or Doll kit. The original eyes are replaced with top quality 'real' acrylic or 'Masterpiece' glastic eyes. The process of coloring the vinyl or silicone is very similar to painting on canvas, as 'layers' are carefully built up to produce the perfect skin tones of a real baby. Genesis Heat Set Paints are used for this since the paint becomes permanent once baked into the vinyl. This process demands a great deal of patience and takes several days to accomplish.
The hair rooting process, which involves the insertion of thousands of hair follicles into the scalp, follows the pattern of natural hair growth. I use Angora Mohair as it is very fine just like a real baby's hair. I also will sometimes use human hair if it is silky and fine enough. I root eyelashes and eyebrows with the same hair as the head and it is all glued on the inside with waterproof glue.
Finger and toe nails are added with such details as nail beds and cuticles. They are sealed with a satin varnish to have the slight sheen of real nails and not glossy like clear nail polish.
The nostrils are carefully opened and backed with felt to give depth and realism. Magnets are glued inside for Magnetic Pacifiers, hair bows or umbilical cords.
The baby has a cloth body so that they are snuggly as opposed to the stiff vinyl bodies. Belly and Tushie plates for posing can be included. I use vinyl pellets, glass gems and polished black river rocks for weighting purposes inside the cloth body. I do not use glass pellets or granules as they can contain glass dust which can be harmful to the respiration system if breathed into the lungs.
There are many, many, steps to reborning a baby but the time consuming process is well worth it in the end when they come to life before your eyes. Ive been lucky enough to be able to combine my two loves, oil painting and doll collecting.
