Kitten Donna RuBert |
Up for adoption today is this gorgeous example of a reborn baby doll. This precious doll was created from the kit, Kitten by Donna RuBert. The head of the doll is from the Kit, Kitten and the limbs are from the kit, Cuddles. I feel she is truly one of a kind. She is a great big beautiful girl representing a baby about 9 months old.
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. I have given my doll a lovely peaches and cream skin tone. I've worked on my baby doll for many hours, days and weeks to make her this detailed. I gave her very subtle veining, beautiful skin tones, realistic painted eyebrows and many sweet details. I take so much care in creating my dolls. This little one turned out, in my opinion, sheer perfection.
I did give this doll a magnet so please do use CAUTION around any equipment or people sensitive to a strong magnet. Also, this is a quality collectible doll not meant to be a play toy for a small child. I would not recommend it for a child under the age of 12.
The doll's nose has not been opened but shaded instead for realism. I gave my angel very lovely hand applied eyelashes both upper and lower. The beautiful dark eyes on this doll are from Bountiful Baby, especially designed for the reborns. The lashes are securely glued on but I would advise using caution when putting clothing over the doll's face. I don't recommend clothing with a small head opening as it can pull too much on the head and face.
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, headbands and caps on the dolls. There is no worry about the mohair matting up. 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. With the 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.
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. The arms and legs are 3/4 length and jointed to allow for movement. She is a very big doll weighing about 9 to 10 pounds. She is approximately 26 inches (24 with bent legs) Having said that, she is sheer joy to hold in your arms. . 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. . 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 9 month sizes and even 12 month. Please be aware that some of the clothing on her does not cover her cloth torso where the head, legs and arms join the vinyl. Someone that is handy with sewing, knitting or crochet may be able to make clothing more for the reborns. I find that usually some part of the cloth torso shows up. . SHE IS A STURDY BABY DOLL. Definitely not recommended for small children.
PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW MY REBORN DOLL WAS PAINTED, PHOTOGRAPHED OR ASSEMBLED PLEASE EMAIL ME.
I DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS ON MY DOLLS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE ADDITIONAL PHOTOGRAPHS, PLEASE CONTACT ME.
My baby doll's layette will include all of the clothing she is seen wearing in the pictures.
The white christening gown is new and 9 month size. It fits the doll nicely but for the collar and the arms. A bit of lace could be sewn on so no cloth would be seen.
The gown that the doll is wearing on the lawn is actually pre-owned. I purchased it on a site where it was advertized as Victorian. I have no providence to back that up but it is a beautiful handmade gown. It is sleeveless so would need something over it to cover the cloth shoulders. The gown as lovely embroidery on the lower part. It is is nice condition with a slight stain below the chin.
The remaining little outfit is a 12 month size new.
I include a lovely custom Certificate of Adoption with the name you choose for the baby and the name of the adopting parent.
My personal care sheet to help you keep your doll in pristine condition.
No other props or items will be included. (I usually do include an extra little outfit of my choice for my babies.
• 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. I take many pictures and close-ups so you can see what you are getting. I truly give my all and love creating these babies. I want every person who purchases one of my babies to feel they got a wonderful baby and to be very happy with them. I truly hope they bring a smile to your face the way they do to mine.
