Angelina-Regina Swialkows |
This stunning reborn baby doll was created from the limited edition kit, Angelina, by Regina Swialkowski. It is number 134 out of only 500. It is a hard to find kit. The face on this beautiful reborn doll looks so real even I am amazed. I have not chosen a name for the doll and will leave that to the adopting parent. I absolutely adore the way this doll looks and feels. This rare kit was amazing to work with.
If you are interested please feel free to make me an offer on the price and I will consider it.
I've used only Genesis heat set paint to baby true life-like skin tones. She was given beautiful undertones to accentuate areas of thinner skin. The blushing is not over done as, in my opinion. she resembles a slightly older baby. Maybe 2 or 3 months. The skin tones on her face seem almost transluscent. I've worked on my little baby doll for many hours, days and weeks to make her this detailed. I gave her very subtle veining, sweet mottling, realistic painted eyebrows and many sweet details.
Baby was painted with layer upon layer of soft translucent skin tones. She has very soft skin colors I did give this doll a magnet so please do use CAUTION around any equipment or people sensitive to a strong magnet.
The doll's nose was not opened but shaded for realism instead. .
The doll was given very real looking glass eyes. The depth and beauty are obvious in the photos. I hand applied the eyelashes to the eyelids. The lashes have a clear strip and look amazingly real. They are very securely glued on, but I would advise to use care when putting clothing over the face. The lashes, I feel, compliment the gorgeous eyes. I've hand painted soft wispy eyebrows on baby.
There are some molded identification markings on the back of the doll's neck.
I feel that my reborn baby doll is truly one of a kind. Each reborn artist has their own techniques. The same kit can look so different from artist to artist. All items used in the making of this doll are new and first quality. When I hold this beautiful little baby doll in my arms I find myself rocking her just as though she were a real infant.
I spent countless hours painting her with a delicate head of baby fine hair. I lay down layer and layer to build up depth and realism. Painted hair on a reborn baby doll is perfect for someone that likes to put lots of hats and caps on the dolls. There is no worry about the mohair matting up. Also, as mohair is a natural fiber it is possible for carpet beetles on destroy mohair. The little style will always look neat and sweet. I added a layer of matt varnish to give the baby hairs a very realistic look. While I do both rooting and painted hair I love the effects I can get when I take my paint brush in hand. I can get very lovely swirls, crown and fine baby hairs. The brushes I use have only the very fewest bristles so I get a very fine line. Most people are so surprised when I tell them baby's hair is painted.
My home is completely smoke free. I try to include everything covering the making of my dolls. If you have any questions please contact me.
Please be aware my doll is not meant to be a play toy for small children. Not recommended for children under the age of 13.
With careful care my dolls will last for many years.
I am always very precise with the finger and toe nails. They are very realistic looking. I use a magnifier and paint them over and over until I am happy with the result. I've used air dry gloss to finish them off. Baby's hands and feet have been blushed sweetly and each crease, fold and wrinkled has been shaded for realism. Baby has the most precious hands and feet. I love working with open fingers on the hands on my dolls. The toes on her little feet are just so precious.
My reborn was given a beautiful body perfect for her size. . Coming from Bountiful Baby it is so well made. I always choose the more expensive bodies for my dolls. The arms and legs are 3/4 length and jointed. She is easy to dress and her limbs have lovely movement to them. She is a good size doll weighing approximately 6 pounds 8 ounces and is approximately 21 inches long. Her limbs are weighted with fine glass beads. The torso is weighted with plastic poly pellets and excellent quality fiber fill. Her head is weighted with plastic poly pellets and quality fiber fill. She, as I mentioned, is a good sized baby doll and feels so real and so cuddly. Her realism is amazing when held. No sand has been used in the making of the baby doll. While her head is not overly floppy I would still recommend supporting it when picking her and setting her down. Baby can wear 3 to 6 months infants clothing. I DO NOT UNDERSTUFF MY DOLLS AS I DO NOT LIKE THE BEAN BAG EFFECT. SHE IS A STURDY BABY DOLL.

• I do not accept returns for my babies. I pour my heart into each and every baby I create. I constantly study up on techniques to try to make my little babies as realistic as possible.
