Thanks ladies for your replies. I’m going to take in the front seam on the body so it isn’t so fat looking.
Victoria, thanks for your description of how to fill and the photos, that will be very helpful.
I will order some of the BB fibre fill next time I do a big order from BB as I live in Australia and it would cost too much for me to just order that because shipping is so expensive to get here, I usually wait until I need a few things and that works out better for me. It is more difficult to get supplies here because everything to do with reborning that I can buy on the internet here is twice the price (sometimes even more) that I can get it in the U.S.
Do the plasic pellets work as well as the tiny glass beads for stuffing in the bodies?

I had the pics saved in my photobucket albums. the bags of fiber fill from BB - I can usually do three newborns - if I use the cheap walmart stuff for the head and topping off the limbs. I have used those polly pellets - and I noticed lots of people use them - I just didn’t think the weight of them justified the price - even if they were cheaper. i could try using the pellets in the chest and the glass beads in the bottom - might try that. the lady that was my mentor - a few of the things she shared made a huge difference - b/c I was on the verge of feeling broken - and had not found this forum - she told me about the weighting - and she also told me that she used mona lisa brush cleaner to thin her genesis paints - nothing else EVER - I had been using odorless paint thinner and picked some of the mona lisa brush cleaner at michaels - and i was shocked out how differently the paints mixed and applied. I would never EVER post any suggestion that did not truly improve or help in making the dolls. I still keep the odorless thinner around to clean off my brushes - but the mona lisa stuff is amazing - and it is the brush cleaner - not thinner. I love it. I wipe the limbs down with it first - then start blushing - using the mona lisa to thin my paints.
