What is exactly "Reborning" and which material do I need?

The hobby came some years ago from the USA to us. There it is already popular since the beginning of 90's. Also here it inspires more and more doll fans. The aim of the "Reborning" is to copy the natural example very precisely. Particularly the representation of small babies is liked.

All vinyl parts get a new, special skin colour (Really Skin technology, see Painting Tutorial). Therefore one take acrylic colours. The doll gets a shock of hair from mohair or real hair which is mostly pierced in the head with special needles. This procedure is called "rooting". Besides, only 1-2 hair is pierced per sting mostly. Then this looks very natural.

Special fillers, e.g., plastic granulate materials, gets the doll on baby weight. It is fitted with a disc joint body, so that all movements look more real. Also the dolls get humanize glass-eyes or acrylic eyes, eyelashes, perhaps little tooth and a special colouring for copying the fingernail and toe nails. Then they must be drawn only accordingly and the Reborn Doll is ready.

 

First you need of course a kit. Here we recommend to beginners a reasonable model with closed eyes. This is easier for the beginning.


There are 2 variations how the head of the kit can be worked, once it can be pasted with a wig or it can be rooted with mohair or human hair.
Then we have sorted the needed materials. The first variation refers to sticking a wig:

  • 1 kg LDC Vinyl Filling

  • LDC Special Reborn Colors (e.g., skin, Burgundy, old rose, salmon and blue)

  • pair of eyes (only for kits with open eyes!), e.g., Lauchaer Glass Eyes
  • 1 eyelashes 
  • Mohair-Baby Wig
