~ DETAILS AT A GLANCE ~
• Lea is sculpted by Bonnie Sieben with such amazing lifelike details and poured in an incredibly soft silicone blend by Kristin Englert and exclusively finished (painted and hair rooted in a silky soft, warm honey, light brown color) by me.
• Lea is #6 in her limited edition.
• Length: 20” long with bent legs
• Weight: 9.2 lbs.
• Head circumference: 14.5”
• Mouth is open with a sculpted tongue inside.
• Flexible neck turns easily side to side with no ball joint; poured in one piece.
- Takes a very small, preemie size pacifier. (I am including one)
- Lea wears newborn size diapers and newborn size clothes very nicely.
• All crochet items are handmade with love by me especially for Lea.
- Baby Lea is a beautiful, sleeping full body silicone baby girl doll poured in an incredibly soft silicone blend. She has the most amazing life-like features and is a dream to hold and cuddle! I took many photos to capture different poses to show her poseability, and photos were taken in different light settings, but mostly by a large window with natural sunlight and clouds moving in and out.
- Lea has been carefully painted in many layers over several days with very soft shading, blushing, and subtle veining in my own custom blend of colors to achieve a warm, realistic baby skin complexion using the highest quality professional silicone paints and pigments on the market. The paint was then permanently sealed and permanently matted for an exquisite velvety-smooth finish and soft baby skin feel. I have studied the art of silicone painting and have worked very hard to learn and achieve a multi-tonal beautiful baby skin tone for total realism. The matting process is also labor intensive and time consuming, but well worth it to achieve such an exquisite finish and totally take away all the shiny gloss of silicone and get the velvety-smooth feel to the touch. Just a stunning look! Every inch has been painted with incredible detail.
- Her hair has been deeply and meticulously directionally rooted 1-2 hairs at a time using ultra premium, silky soft, alpaca hair in a warm honey, light brown color. This hair rooting process takes a very long time - many, many hours.
- I have painted and sealed delicate eyebrows and hand rooted her delicate little wispy eyelashes.
- Baby white fingernail and toenail tips have been delicately painted, glossed, and sealed on all 10 fingers and all 10 toes.
- Lea can be gently bathed in a mild baby soap if you should choose to ever bathe her. She has already been bathed and is super clean and fresh. Of course, scrubbing or excessively rubbing of her skin during bathing is never recommended on these delicate silicone collector art dolls. While her hair is deeply micro-rooted, gentle care of her hair is also recommended. You can very carefully brush and style her hair with a spritz of water and a soft bristled baby brush or toothbrush.
- Lea is a beautiful baby girl with very realistic detail and so very soft and cuddly. She feels wonderful to hold and cuddle in your arms.
- My babies come from an entirely smoke-free environment.

***It is not uncommon for silicone babies to have a slight mark or imperfection here and there, which is not considered a flaw, but part of the handmade process and charm and simply the nature and characteristics of silicone. Please do note these dolls are art dolls completely handmade and can have small irregularities that are characteristics attributable to silicone and handmade artistry. Every hand that touches the doll from the sculpting, molding, casting, painting, rooting processes strives to produce a perfect doll, but typically this is not possible due to the sensitivity of all materials used and by human hand processes. Dolls that are machine or factory made of plastic or vinyl could possibly be perfect, but not handmade, soft, more life-like silicone art dolls. If there is some kind of a large, glaring imperfection on a doll, then the doll is labelled as a "boo-boo" doll and sold as such with a discount. This is not a boo-boo doll. Each silicone baby is a one-of-a-kind. There are no two dolls exactly alike.
In summary, I have lovingly painted, sealed, matted, directionally micro-rooted the hair and lashes, accessorized, and did a photo shoot and video for this baby just for you - the new mommy to be. All this reborn work has been done entirely and exclusively by me, Amy Kate Irwin, of Amy Kate Doll Designs. Please know that I put my heart and soul into each baby I do.
