I killed him! 😭

I melted my first baby! I feel so bad! I was having trouble with is head sinking in and so I did my final matte coat and put polyfill in. His little face melted…As you can tell I’m quite sad and feel a failure.

Oh no!

I’m sorry to hear that happened to you. It has happened to me before. I don’t know what it is with polyfil in the head. It splits the head open when it is heated.

That is terrible! What kit were you painting?

Thank you. I had never had the problem of heads sinking in and it was the first time I tried the polyfill while baking. Poor thing was on the final lap and I melted his little face. It is very cold outside too so it may have been a combination of all of this. Right now I’m binge eating Reese’s. :disappointed:

He was a Teddi Winters and was going to be my first cuddle baby.

I am so sorry, it’s a heart braking, but I had to tell you that I baked once head with polyfil and glass beads and nothing happened. I guess I was lucky.

@Nikkiroc, thank you. He isn’t fixable. :slightly_frowning_face: The right side of his little face is all droopy. Like he had a stroke.

I’m so sorry about your head :frowning: I always feel sad hearing about melted heads. I wonder if there is a way to prevent this? I haven’t baked my first head yet and I’m scared of this happening.

@Becca, the good news is that this is the first one I’ve ever melted of over sixty babies. I am lucky.
@Nikkiroc, he possibly could be an alternative baby. I just don’t know if I want to do that. I had to put him away, he is like “why did you do this to me?”.

I feel for you! So sorry this happened. I melted one of my Larry Blick heads once and it was so traumatic. And Teddi is a sold out kit. He was my favorite when I began reborning. Hugs

Thank you @InfantInspirations. I know many of you all have been in this same spot once or twice.
