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

The hobby came to us from the USA about 20 years ago to Europe. It has been popular there since the early 1990s. The goal of "reborn" is to reproduce the natural model as precisely as possible. The representation of small babies is particularly popular.

All vinyl parts get a new, special skin color (real skin technique). Certain acrylic or oil paints are often used for this. The doll receives a head of mohair or real hair, which is pierced into the head with special needles. This process is called "rooting". Usually only 1-2 hairs are pierced per stitch. This looks very natural.
Special filling materials, e.g. Vinyl granules, bring the doll to baby weight. It is equipped with a disc joint body, so that all movements appear more real. The dolls also receive human-looking glass or acrylic eyes, eyelashes, possibly teeth, and a special coloring to replicate the fingernails and toenails. After that, they just have to be dressed accordingly and the Reborn baby is ready.
 
First of all, of course, you need a kit. Here we recommend beginners an inexpensive model with closed eyes. This is easier to start with.
There are different ways of editing the head of the kit. We have shown 2 here. Once it can be covered with a tress hat or a wig or the hair is rooted.
Then we sorted the required materials. The first variant relates to sticking on a tress bowl:

 

  • 1 kg Vinyl Filling
  • 1 kg Glass Pellets
  • 1m tube fabric 
  • 300 g filling cotton 
  • Puppen-Traumland Reborn Acryl Paints (e.g., white matte, skin, old rose, lachs, burgund, blue, green and black)
  • 1 set painting sponges
  • 1 pen for the nails
  • 1x 3 D gel
  • paint-brush-set
  • pair of eyes (only for kits with open eyes!), e.g., Lauchaer Glass Eyes
  • 1 eyelashes 
  • Mohair-Baby Wig
  • 1 glue 
  • 1 precision utility knife


The second variation contains everything what, moreover, still used to root:
   

  • 1 kg Glass Pellets
  • 1 kg Vinyl Filling
  • 1m tube fabric 
  • 300 g filling cotton 
  • Puppen-Traumland Reborn Acryl Paints (e.g., white matte, skin, old rose, lachs, burgund, blue, green and black)
  • 1 paint palette 
  • 1 set painting sponges
  • 1 pen for the nails
  • 1 3 D gel
  • 1 paint-brush-set 
  • pair of eyes (only for kits with open eyes!), e.g., Lauchaer Glass Eyes
  • 1 eyelashes 
  • 1 Rooting Mohair 
  • 10er set felting needles fine
  • 1 tool for feltingneedle 
  • 1 glue 
  • 1 precision utility knife
