Reborns by Zebra

Babies (45)
 
I started reborning as a sort of therapy for myself due to the loss of my oldest son and the loss of my ability to walk. Every baby I create makes me feel, not only happy but productive and a little bit stronger. My nursery has the name "Reborns by Zebra" because people with my primary disease, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome call themselves Zebras due to EDS being a more rare disease although some types are simply rarely diagnosed. I send information about my disease home with every baby to help spread awareness and I also always send something "zebra" be it a lovey, clothes, pacifier or hair bows.

Im an American but I have been living in France for 8 years now, my husband is French. I had five children and I am now a GiGi (grandma) of two little boys. I have two teenagers still living at home, my son and daughter, and both have autism. They did well in school until they started middle school. I now homeschool them and they do much better.

I use our guest room for my studio but my babies have also spilled out into the living room as well. No one in my family seems to mind babies every where and they even are happy to help me with them but new people who come to the house to care for me or therapy with my kids probably think Im a bit odd having baby parts hanging from a clothes drying rack. Due to my limitations my husband helps with the assembly of the babies plus all the shipping and paper work, also he has made the birth certificates. My 14 year old daughter helps with making pacifier leashes and knitted hats for the babies...she also acts as a model to hold the babies in pictures. So reborning has become a family "business" for us.

I take great care in painting my babies to look as realistic as possible using many layers of Golden fluid paints which are the highest quality and highest pigmented acrylic paints on the market. I also use Panpastel artist powders to help create even more realism. I protect all my reborns with Golden polymer matte varnish that has UV protection and I add RebornFX matte powder to help prevent any shine. I then use Americana soft touch varnish over the top to give them more baby soft skin and add some dewy features.
I use only high quality glass beads (small in the limbs and larger for weighting inside nylon stockings) and sometimes steel shot for extra weight. I also use high quality polyfil to make your baby snuggly soft.

All my babies come to you from a smoke free, pet friendly, happy home.
