My first Reborn baby! (Pic Heavy)


#1

Realborn Miya who was a joy to paint! Got a lot of wonderful tips and help from people on this forum. Thanks to everyone!! I was also wondering if mohair usually gets kinda frizzy when handled, it looks great wet and when it dries. Any tips would greatly help!


#2

She’s gorgeous! And yes, that does tend to happen when mohair is handled a lot, just brush it again with some conditioner and it’ll be fine. I know what you mean though, I hate when it happens.


#3

She is just beautiful! Love the poses :slight_smile:


#4

Thank you!! It was just bothering me, I have a care packet and said her hair might be frizzy after traveling. I’ll try conditioning and air drying her hair before packing her.


#5

I do the same thing. I include a sheet on how to take care of the hair and stuff too.


#6

Thank you!! I have done amateur newborn photography and a reborn is way easier! :blush:


#7

I was so proud when I figured out how to print front and back! :joy: I created a trifold pamphlet in Photoshop to include.


#8

That’s awesome! I include a folder with all kinds of different papers in it. Care instructions, fake formula recipe,hair care, magnet warning etc.
I also love your photos! I do newborn photography also but I find it easier with real babies than with reborns lol They’re easier to pose generally than a doll is.


#9

Looks awesome! Love the eyebrows. Great pics too!


#10

I have so much to learn! I might create a different topic about what people include, or search it. This is the packet, it was a test one that my husband proof read and red marked. I also had a two year old pretending to read it.


#11

That’s gotta be one of the best firsts I’ve ever seen. WOW!!! :heart_eyes:


#12

Thank you!! I loved drawing the eyebrows!


#13

That is too sweet! Made me tear up. :blush:


#14

I can pm you with what I send and you can use it as a guide or see if there’s any info you forgot in yours if you want. :slight_smile: I also made my on birth certificates that I send too. Yours looks really good, I like the style of it.


#15

That would be so awesome! I greatly appreciate it! Everyone is always so nice here. It seems like a family. :heart:


#16

I’m also not too confident in these prismacolor hair jobs. Do babies sell with hair like this? I haven’t baked Clyde’s yet so I might can cry and wipe all that pencil off.


#17

It looks good. A lot of dolls with prisma hair like that sell really well :slight_smile:


#18

I like the lack of maintenance but personally I want to style that hair!


#19

Same. I don’t like painted hair much at all, it really doesn’t look realistic IMO. It looks good for sure, but not super real up close. I also like rooting too much to paint hair lol


#20

I only painted Macey because she had yellow spots and I was going to make a cuddle baby… Then I color corrected the spots. Clyde was just not looking quite as good as I hoped and didn’t think I should root him. Ugh!
