What is a reborn doll and what is reborning?

 

A reborn doll is a hand made art doll created from a blank kit or a manufactured doll that has been completely transformed by an artist to resemble a human infant with as much realism as possible. The process of creating a reborn doll is referred to as reborning and the doll artists are referred to as reborners. Reborn dolls are also known as living dolls.

How is a reborn doll made?

It all starts with buying supplies such as a doll kit, a special oven to bake the paint layers, paints, thinner, brushes, sponges, mohair or real human hair, glass beads  and stuffing for the body of the doll and body parts, clothes, blanket ect....

Usually the Artist will wash the kit before painting to make sure no dirt or grease residue is left on the vinyl or silicone kit.

they will then start with the painting process, skin tone, veining, mottling, creases, blushing,  it takes many many layers of paint to achieve the final results all Artist are different and have their own way and painting styles.

Some will paint the eyebrows and hair or root them with mohair. Silicone dolls are matted after the last  sealing painting layer as been apply, if it's a vinyl doll it can be matted as well but with difference supplies. Rooting a doll can take up to 30+ hrs it is definitely a labor of love!! 

I hope this helped shade some light on how these beautiful babies are brought to life!!

Striving for the most realistic looking doll possible is the main goal of most reborn Artist, it certainly is mine and I enjoy every minute of it!!!

What is a reborn doll used for?

 

Reborns dolls can be used for grieving woman, couples

Reborn dolls are hyper-realistic dolls, treated like real children, given a birthing ceremony and even a heartbeat. Yet they serve a deeper purpose, being used as therapeutic aids to help woman through infertility, miscarriage and the loss of a child, as well as anxiety and depression.

Reborn dolls can be used for Dementia patients 

Therapy dolls can help seniors feel useful and needed and give them something positive to focus on.

Similar to the effect of soft toys like stuffed animals, hugging something soft helps someone with dementia feel comforted and soothed.

Another reason therapy dolls are helpful is that they can bring back happy memories of early parenthood for both women and men.

Many older adults enjoy rocking and cuddling their doll. Some even adopt the baby as their own and make caring for it part of their daily routine.

Having a child to care for can also ease feelings of isolation and sadness.

After all, when interacting with real babies, many people find their spirits lifted and their nerves calmed.

Reborns dolls can bring joy to many people such as collectors, kids, adults of all age. Some dolls are used in movies as well.
