Harper - Bountiful

Up for "adoption" if my version of the full vinyl anatomically correct little boy Harper from Bountiful Baby.
Buyer must be 18 or older to purchase. Please DO NOT ask for a free doll or for me to lower the price.. I spend too much of my own time and money working on my reborns to give them away. I price them extremely reasonable for the quality of the dolls. My reborn has been created to last for generations with proper care. Compare my quality to that of other artists to make your decision.

If you have any questions at all about my one of a kind reborn baby doll please contact me. I will answer with complete honesty.

HIGHLIGHTS OF NEWBORN PROCESS


****************************************************

I have painted Harper using only Genesis heat set paints. This is the only type of paint I use on my reborns because of the durability and very translucent realistic skin tones I can achieve. Harper is 20 inches approximately and weighs a very realistic five pounds - twelve ounces. Harper was given a very blotchy newborn skin tone. He has wonderful blushes, accentuated creases, subtle veining, and soft undertones where baby would normally have thinner skin. The doll is finished up with a permanent matte varnish. The nostrils on Harper were shaded for added realism. The eyelids, mouth and inner ears were giving a moist varnish. I gave baby many extra details such as little capillaries on the eyelids and tiny broken capillaries on cheeks and ears.

************************* ******************************************

Harper is a full vinyl doll. The anatomically correct torso fits over his cloth body like that of a turtle shell. The head and limbs on the doll are attached securely to the cloth body. I personally find this my favorite type of kit to work with because of the adorable little torso. If you are familiar with reborns you may know that some dolls have a cloth body with the limbs and head attached to that. The full vinyl torso kit will not feel as cuddly as a cloth body but I feel that the realism it gives the doll more than makes up for it. The limbs and head do have some movement but should never be forced into position. I use only non-toxic materials for weighting and stuffing my dolls. I use fine glass beads to weight the limbs and secure the caps to prevent any leakage. I used plastic poly pellets to weight Harper's torso. The pellets are enclosed in two socks, (one inside the other). I do not use any nylon stockings to weight the doll as a want to prevent any chance of tears causing the pellets to leak out.

**************************************************************************

I have opted to give little man Harper a gorgeous head of very baby looking painted hair. I use paint brushes with only the fewest of bristles and build up layer upon layer of fine baby hairs. I love this look when I am working on a very newborn looking doll. The doll has a nice thick head of hair but still gives the slightly balding look that newborns have. A painted head of hair is perfect for someone that likes to put lots of hats and caps on baby. The hair style is very realistic looking with lots of movement and texture. Lots of fine baby hair running onto the face. I painted Harper's eyebrows with the same color of his painted head of hair. I gave Harper rooted baby eyelashes with a premium quality mohair. The lashes are securely glued but I always recommend using care when pulling clothing over the face.


********************************************************************

I opted to give little man Harper a magnetic pacifier. Please use caution around any type of equipment or persons (i.e. pacemakers) that would be sensitive to this type of magnet. Also, be aware that my doll is not meant in any way to be a play toy for a small child. I consider it an heirloom quality collectible and should be handled with care. Also, if you have any chewing pets please keep the doll away from them as the limbs contain find glass beads. (I covered the magnet on the pacifier with felt to prevent it scratching the lips on the doll. Also it sits away from the face enough to prevent it from scratching the doll's cheeks)

*******************

Harper wears 0 - 3 months baby clothing very nicely. Because of the full vinyl torso he can wear a much larger selection of clothing. I will start Harper off with a darling layette of the clothing he is seen wearing in the pictures. I send along a care sheet with my personal recommendations for keeping baby is pristine condition. I create a custom certificate of adoption with the name of the adopting parent and baby's name. If you want to choose a different name for Harper please advise me with your payment. Also, don't forget the name of the adopting parent. Layette will include the magnetic pacifier, a receiving blanket and extra diapers. I always include an item or two of clothing of my own choosing. No other obvious props or items will be included.

*****************

I create my dolls with much patience, skill, love and time. Regardless of the price of the kit I am working on each doll gets my full attention. I am an experienced reborn artist and have adopted out many of my beautiful reborns. Please be aware that I DO NOT accept any returns on my dolls. If you have any questions at all about how the doll was painted, weighted, photographed or assembled please contact me. I will answer with complete honesty. I do not take any layaway at this time. I only take payments from paypal and will only send to the address that paypal has on file.
