Baby just arrived BUT her head is smushed?!


#1

What do I do? Will filling her head “fix” this? Will baking her “fix” this?? .


#2

Baking should fix it, if not then stuffing it will


#3

Thanks! I was wondering if I should warm it and then stuff it so when it cools it is cooling into the shape it should be :woman_shrugging:t2: Hope that makes sense


#4

If it doesn’t resolve with just baking then you could definitely do that.


#5

Baking or boiling it will fix it. If you heat it first it will be easier to paint.


#6

I never bake , only use air dry, but if you fill it with hot tap water, let sit in the sink, and refill a few times, as it cools, will pop right out


#7

Her forehead isn’t going to get completely smooth. It’s kind of lumpy. It’s the way it’s sculpted.


#8

Yea … just heat the head and it should fix itself. Just make sure not to lay it down on its side while cooling


#9

That is exactly what I did and it worked!


#10

Fill the head with very hot almost boiling water and it will reshape.
