WIP -Reborn tiny baby - Marita Winters- Rooting

Such a sweet little baby!
I've been rooting the head and it is taking hours. I started with the lashes and then did some wispy brows. I don't want to add too much hair to this little one. He reminds me of a baby chick so the hair should be more like fuzz...(chuckle).
This tiny baby fits so nicely in my hands. He is the size that I most like to work with, especially when I create my one of a kind polymer babies. I used my original doll drying stand for him made by placing bamboo skewers in some floral foam in a heavy glass container. His body part openings are small so the dowels that I used for the larger dolls would not do.
I will be adding tiny glass beads to his limbs and body. I need to take a break from! When I finish rooting I will add glue to the inside of his head adhering the mohair fibers and then finishing up by adding glass beads and poly fiber.
Enjoy your day!

  3. morena, before I forget i want to tell you that I am so bad in naming animals then when is time to sell I try to argue with my husband about it...grin... i know what you mean... if you name an animals - That is it!
    gosh this baby looks real!

  4. Hi Pat! Yes, bringing home strays is difficult. I try to call them little boy or mamma etc... as not to get emotionally attached. It really doesn't work but it's worth a try. Once a name is given to a little one a personality seams to!
    Thank you for your kind comments. You're so sweet and I am a big fan of your work. I can hardly wait to see your new creations.
    Hugs, Morena
