Look who's new in the nursery!
Please welcome Matthew. This is the sold out limited edition "Pickle" kit by the talented sculptor Nikki Johnston. An adorably realistic sculpt!! Matthew was hand painted using Genesis heat set paints and mediums. This paint is permanent. He has subtle mottling and veining throughout his limbs, blue and purple undertones where babies have thinner skin. A final layer of matte varnish protects his painting and gives him a slight texture. I have given Matthew a lovely new baby skin tone. I paint only in natural daylight and apply many thin layers for a realistic 3D effect. I mix my own colors making Matthew truly one of kind! Matthew has painted eyebrows and rooted lashes. His sweet nose has been shaded to create depth and I have added the moisture affect to his eyelids, ears, inside of his mouth and nostrils. His lips have been lightly glossed ~ so lifelike! Matthew has a professionally made cloth body. It features non jointed full arms and full legs with a gathered tushy with a darted chest for the ultimate in realism when posing or holding sweet little Matthew. It is a lovely flesh color, will look seamless under clothes. Matthew fits well into 0 to 3 and 2 to 4 mos sized clothing depending on the brand and the fit you like. His limbs and body are filled with a combination of 2 different size fine glass beads, soft fiberfill and a tummy insert. He is weighted to feel like a real baby in your arms. His chest is under stuffed so he is floppy like a real sleeping baby would be. His head will need to be supported. He is scented to keep him smelling baby fresh. His sweet fingers and toes have been tipped and sealed. He is fitted with a strong earth magnet for a modified pacifier. I have chosen high quality Angora yearling mohair in a beautiful dark choclate brown color for Matthew. It is directionally micro rooted, very soft, straight with a slight wave and behaves beautifully. It is sealed from the inside so that it may be gently styled. Rooted hair really adds to the realism of your reborn!

Matthew's layette features: Baby Bear bodysuit, 2 piece limited edition, baby exculsive ribbed cardigan and bodysuit set, cotton knee socks, modified magnetic pacifier, disposable diaper, soft blanket, birth certificate, baby's first photo, certificate of authenticity, care instructions.

Baby is handmade, fragile and considered art, not a toy. Baby is meant to be displayed and observed. I do not recommend my baby dolls for children under the age of 14. I have been creating reborn baby dolls 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 to ask questions or request additional photos 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 baby's name is a suggestion and may be changed by you at adoption. My studio is a completely smoke free, adult environment.

Due to the nature of the item and because baby is fragile and considered art I would prefer not to take a return. Everyone wants to be baby's original mommy so please understand and respect that. 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 the buy now, pay later programs offered (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. Baby comes with the items in the layette section only. All other items in photos are props and not included in the sale. Due to the recent passing of my pet, my studio is currently pet free however I do work with animal (mo)hair. This listing may end at any time as I also offer my reborns on other social platforms. I strive for a pleasant transaction. Thank you for looking! :)
