Baby's Beginnings Image

This beautiful little baby girl started out as a sculpt named "Americus" by the reborn artist Laura Lee Eagles and has been reborn by me into this amazingly lifelike little baby girl. Mekelty is #43 of a limited edition of 1640 kits world wide. All of my babies here at “Baby Kisses Nursery” are created with a lot of time and love. I spent many hours on her painting and I am so pleased with the way she turned out. She has multi-dimensional skin tones that are very realistic. This baby wears size newborn clothing. She is now a beautiful hand crafted collectable heirloom doll that can be passed down for many generations and is not recommended for very young children.

Baby's Skin Image

 I first gave Mekelty a warm bubble bath to remove any factory residue from her skin and then began the long process of bringing her to life. She has very life like skin tones that were achieved by applying many translucent layers of Miracle Blend air dry paints. These paints are permanent and won't rub off over time. She has natural undertones of blue where a newborns skin would naturally be thinner and a mottled complexion with subtle veining. Her mouth has been painted and then sealed with a permanent clear gloss to give it a moist wet look. I applied a touch of gloss to her eye area, mouth and the inside of her nose to give them a natural moist look. Her skin tones are truly amazing with no detail overlooked for an ultra realistic look.

Baby's Eyes Image

Mekelty has wispy hand rooted eyelashes and her eyebrows have been lightly painted on one stroke at a time in a color to match her hair.

Fingers and Toes Image

All of her cute little fingers and toe nails have been painted, tipped in a off-white and then sealed for protection.

Baby's Body Image

Mekelty has a anatomically correct girl soft vinyl body and full limbs. She has soft doe suede fabric body inside of her vinyl body. She has been weighted with fine glass beads and soft poly fiberfill in her limbs. She also has a bag of fine glass beads that are encased in a cloth bag and surrounded by soft poly fiberfill in her body so she now has the feel and weight of a real baby when held. Her little head can be gently turned from side to side and it will need to be supported just like a real baby's.

Baby's Hair Image

Her hair has been finely rooted with baby brown soft premium angora mohair.  I use a very tiny needle and this takes several days to complete but I feel the results are well worth it. Her hair is so soft and fine and feels just like a real baby's hair. It has been sealed on the inside with a waterproof glue so you can now gently style it with a little water or baby spray conditioner.
