Well, it feels like back I’m in school, but I saw others doing this soo…I wanted to give it a go.
I’m new to this forum and a fledgling reborn artist. I came across this hobby through my daughter! She doesn’t collect reborns, but she’s really into ball jointed dolls. I felt like I needed something to keep myself entertained with and just, something to do on my spare time! So, I began to explore the reborn world and I ended up here.
There’s a kit sitting on the edge of my bed just waiting for me to work on him (decided it should be a boy!) but I am still terrified! What if I ruin him? He’s too cute! So, I thought I would join this forum to seek for advice and to learn from others. I hope to slowly see progress in my work while creating new friends here!
Thank you very much and have a wonderful night!

Oooh! She’s so gorgeous and her eyes are stunning.
I decided over the Sam kit…I completely forgot the name of the artist, but I purchased him through here. He’s a really cute one! I’m so excited to get started on him. Reborning sounds very fun!
If you ruin him… Just buy another!!! Lolol jump in!!! ️:heart:️
That is so kind of you! Thank you very much. I will make sure to post some pictures of my Sam along the way. I’m still just terrified to mess him up in some way, but I’m also excited to start on him.
Haha! Yes, that’s also another option of course. Practice perfects the art after all! Thank you very much
This is actually really helpful, thank you so much! I will get down to watching them right now and then I will begin to work on my kit. Thanks!
I suggest going through the entire painting and sealing process on a test limb. I did it on a leg. For the first kit, don’t expect too much. Go through the entire process and know that is a hands-on way to learn. We all learn a lot with each baby we do, especially in the beginning.
I just laughed so hard I almost fell off the couch! Thank you for being you Amy:-). You are my brilliant priceless genius! ️
