Four Baby Dolls: Special Artist Offerings.

These four little bisque baby dolls are available now because of a project
I was involved with this past spring and summer. I was trying out some techniques used for
"reborning" on some porcelain baby dolls. Some of the dolls had been painted some
years ago by my assistant and, Geri Uribe. Some of them were made for the project.
The ones that were made painted by Geri and repainted by
myself I decided to call "repaints" The ones that were made and
painted by me, for the project, I will call "reborn."

11" Aaron was taken from the shelf, thoroughly cleaned and treated with a sealer so that I could apply sheer, delicate layers of artists colors to bring up the natural skin tones. I also touched up the eye paint so that it was more like my current way of painting the eyes. Then I applied the mohair "wig," setting the hair, a few strands at a time, into the sealer for a natural baby look. Aaron is a classic baby boy with a new look. His body is cloth weighted with pellets. His bisque head and hands have a new rosy glow with touches of realistic detail. A joy to have and hold.

SOLD! 11" Aaron Repaint $295
Shipping and insurance within the US $10.00
I will email you upon receiving the order. Thanks, D.E.


9" Tiny Boy was also refreshed and repainted like Aaron giving him a lively new look. It's exciting to see these little faces come to life with radiate color. The final touch of soft golden mohair completes the realistic effect. Another timeless treasure.

9" Tiny Repaint $350 - Sold


9" Infant Chelsea was another darling baby brought from the cabinet for a touch up. I added richer flesh tones, new sparkle to the eyes and the fuzzy curly hair. Chelsea is made with bisque head and hands with a cuddly cloth body. She wears a soft cotton knit cuddle suit and hand knit sweater, hat and booties. She comes with here own blanket and toy.

SOLD! 9" Chelsea Repaint $175
Shipping and insurance within the US $10.00
I will email you upon receiving the order. Thanks, D.E.


9" Tiny Girl was made and painted at the time of the project. After the initial work was done in China paint the bisque was sealed so that I could apply the artist colors for more realistic color and detail. Finally the eyes were glazed and the fine mohair applied.

9" Tiny Girl Reborn $350 - Sold
