Look who's awake in the nursery!
Please welcome Ethan. This is the "Rafael" kit by the wonderful Severine Piret. #346 of 2000. Ethan was hand painted using Genesis heat set paints. This paint is permanent. He has subtle mottling and veining throughout his limbs, blue and purple undertones where babies have thinner skin. I use my own combination of Genesis varnish to matte, seal and protect his painting and give him a slight texture. I have given Ethan a lovely new baby skin tone. I paint only in natural daylight, apply many thin layers for a realistic 3D effect and never rush my work. I mix my own colors making Ethan truly one of kind! Ethan has painted eyebrows and applied lashes. His sweet nose has been shaded to create depth and I have added the moisture affect to his eyelids, ears and nostrils. His lips have been lightly glossed. Some milia on the bridge of his nose add to his newborn details. I have chosen Lauscha glass eyes for Ethan in a stunning blue color. I then glossed them over for a realistic wet look ~ so lifelike! Ethan has a professionally made cloth body. It features non jointed full arms and full legs with a gathered tushy. It is a lovely flesh color and will look seamless under clothes. Ethan fits well into 0-3 or 1-2 months sized clothing depending on the brand. His limbs and body are filled with a combination of 2 different size fine glass beads, soft fiberfill and a silicone tummy insert. I also gave this baby an armature for endless fun posing him! He is able to sit, hold things, and much more. He is scented to keep him smelling baby fresh. His sweet fingers and toes have been tipped and sealed. Ethan takes a modified magnetic pacifier. I have given Ethan lovely, high quality fine adult mohair in a chocolate brown color with some lighter color hair around the hairline for a softer look. It is directionally micro rooted, soft, straight to slightly wavy and sealed from the inside so that it may be gently styled. Rooted hair really adds to the realism of your reborn!

Ethan's layette features: striped bodysuit, blue pacifier (for prop), long sleeve white bodysuit, corduroy footed jumpsuit, modified magnetic pacifier, disposable diaper, travel blanket, baby's first photo, birth certificate, certificate of authenticity, care instructions.

Baby is handmade, fragile and considered art, not a toy. He is meant to be displayed and observed. I do not recommend my babies for children under the age of 14. I have been creating reborn babies for years and have even been a prototype artist for top sculptors such as Toby Morgan, Tru Born Inc and Cassie Brace. Each baby made in my studio takes many hours of dedication to complete. I take pride in my art and care about my work. I use only quality materials and proven methods along with some of my own techniques. I am constantly working to improve with each baby made. Please feel free to message me any questions or to ask for additional pictures before purchasing so that you are confident of your purchase. I am always happy to hear from customers and will get back to you asap, usually within a few hours. The name Christopher is a suggestion and may be changed by you at adoption.

I take very detailed box packing photos to ensure baby was packed with care. Baby is represented in the photos to the best of my ability with all pictures taken by myself in natural daylight using a Nikon dslr camera over a two day period. Baby is painted art so the skin tone may vary slightly depending on the light in which baby is displayed. I use a color calibrated, high resolution monitor. Monitor settings may differ so please allow for this. As with any handmade item slight imperfections can occur but do not detract from the beauty of the art work. Please make sure the baby is for you BEFORE buying. I do not offer a private layaway here however you may take advantage of PayPal's delayed payment program (pending approval). I do not alter my reborns once completed so please do not ask for any modifications. I use a digital scale to weigh the baby. The accuracy of other digital scales may vary slightly. I strive for a pleasant transaction. Baby comes with the items in the layette section only. All other items in photos are props and not included in the sale. This listing may end at any time as I also offer my reborns on other social platforms. Thank you for looking! :)
