   "Cream Puff Babies Nursery"

Baby "Melinda" has been adopted

"Baby Melinda is so precious! So real! I love her! Thank you!"

Extra special care and handling was used in the nursery to bring Baby Melinda's reborn process to "life-like" detail.

This precious little girl came into the nursery as a Linda Spahic sculpt.  Made of Gentle Touch Vinyl the mold to start out with is very realistic and putting her through the reborn process enhances that realism even more.  With delicate handling and extra special care this little baby has been transformed into a treasured little OOAK "Cream Puff Babies Nursery" baby girl.

It's very difficult to describe each step that goes into creating a "Cream Puff Baby" as in real life each baby’s skin tone is unique and different, several different techniques are used on each baby to achieve the desired skin complexion for that individual baby.  The vinyl is colored on outside to give little Melinda the most realistic newborn "blotchy" tone complexion. This natural shade of coloring was created with Genesis heat set paints, stencil paints, & etc. that I’ve applied over multiple steps to achieve the true to life look.  Each baby is carefully hand painted until I have achieved the desired results for that individual baby.

It was such a pleasure and a joy to work on Baby Melinda.  She seemed to come to more to life with every step and detail that went into her.

I have micro-rooted little dark brown mohair eyelashes to accentuate her new life like look. Her lips were color blended to a more natural tone and sealed so her mouth looks moist and wet.  I also applied tiny barely there little brush stroke eyebrows. Additionally, her little nose was carefully opened. Notice the newborn like shades of blues and greens on her face to really bring out her realistic look.

I have replaced Melinda's full vinyl body with a new muslin cloth body that has been stuffed and weighted to give her a realistic feel. This body has been delicately weighted and stuffed with a combination of fluffy soft PolyFil and plastic pellets.

Melinda now has full vinyl Euro Berenguer arms & legs. She can be posed in many positions and now wear a variety of cute little outfits.  Melinda has been given hand painted finger & toenails that have been sealed with a satin sealer to highlight the details of her tiny hands & feet.

Melinda has micro-rooted baby soft, dark brown mohair.  Each little strand was rooted in the direction that her hair would naturally grow. I then sealed it on the inside so it can be gently combed and styled. Her hair was then trimmed and shaped to appear as realistic as a newborn baby’s hair does.

She has subtle veining throughout her hands/arms, legs/feet, forehead, & even on her little eyelids.
