|Thank You for Visiting.
My name is Elli. I have been painting child portraits for 40 plus years and "Reborning" for 10 years.
My shop is named after my youngest Grandchild, Sofia Celeste. She loves Reborn Babies as much as I do.
ALL OF MY BABIES ARE CUSTOM ORDERS. TOGETHER WE WILL CREATE THE BABY OF YOUR DREAMS!
All my babies are made with countless hours spent on every crease, strand of hair, and delicate detail. If you see something you would consider an "imperfection", remember, these babies are "pieces of art" and not mass produced. Each little detail will be original to your baby only and,therefore, not a flaw at all.
Your baby will be unique and truly one of a kind. There will never be another like it!
Your Baby will be painted with "Special Care Nursery" Air Dry Paints from the UK. I have been painting child portraits for over 40 years and Acrylic is my preferred medium. These paints can create incredible realism. They won't wear off. Each baby has been sealed with matte varnish. Her lovely, multi-layered skin tone is permanent. She...or He has beautiful mottling and tiny veins just beneath the skin like a real newborn. No detail has been overlooked from the sweet lips to the delicate toes. The nails have been painted to look like freshly clipped baby nails, and the nose has been shaded for depth instead of opened. The hair has been micro rooted 1-3 strands at a time with premium mohair.
Your Baby will be weighted with poly-fill, poly pellets, and fine glass beads in the body, limbs, and head. No sand is ever used in my babies. Depending on size will weigh 4-7 pounds and feel just like a real baby when you pick it up. You have to support the little head and it just snuggles right into your arms.
PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO CONTACT ME FOR ANY QUESTIONS.
