  1. 1. Reborn Dolls: 3 things to remember when you make your own Produced By “Reborn Doll World” Written By Helen Carter © 2010
  2. 2. 3 things to remember when you make your own reborn dolls If you are interested in making your own reborn dolls then you are surely in for some fun times. when you come to putting the finishing touches to the newborn baby doll you will get a great sense of satisfaction. To help you avoid some common pitfalls, here are the leading 3 tips to remember. Remove the original of all factory markings One of the most important things you need to do is to get rid of all of the factory markings from the doll you want to reborn. This will include any and all factory paint as well as the dolls hair and eyelashes. It can be quite a lot of work to do this, especially considering some dolls have a huge amount of glue inside the head in order to hold the hair in place, but if you leave anything on the doll it will ruin the look of your finished doll. © 2010
  3. 3. You dont need to use a purple wash When reborning was in its infancy, many people applied a purple wash to the inside of the dolls limbs. This was to give the skin a slight blue tint which helped to increase the visual outcome and make it look more real. However, it was soon found out that the paint used in the purple wash will, over time, penetrate the outside of the limbs and can lead to the outer paint layers being tainted. This effect can ruin the entire doll. For this reason, it is best to not use a purple wash and instead you should focus on building up the paint in a series of layers on top of each other. Dont use sand to weight the doll One of the last things to do is to add some weight to the dolls body and limbs before you put it back together. It is important that you try to avoid using sand where possible though. For one thing, the bags that contain the sand are most likely going to leak and will leave the doll with an uneven weight as well as making a mess. Sand, being rather fine, is liable to find its way out of most bags quite easily. © 2010
  4. 4. Also, if the doll contains sand, you may find problems if you want to ship your doll overseas(if you sell them) it might get rejected by customs and excise, which has been the case several times already. These 3 things will help you to get the most out of making your own reborn dolls. Of course, you should mainly focus on having fun and enjoying what you are doing.
