Hi. I’m not sure what a prototype is? I’m very new in this reborn world.
When a kit is made a few kits will be made and shipped to the sculptor (I think). Before a big order is made.
Then they send them to a selected group of about 5 people
These are the prototype artists.
They reborn the kits and provide the sculptor and kit dealers the pictures of these PROTOTYPES to be used to help sell the blank kits to artists so artist can get an idea of what the blank kit COULD possibly look like.
So a prototype is the first few kits of s sculpt - painted by master artists.
Very well described Jenni!
