Reborn dolls are usually made from manufactured doll, but they can also be made from blank kits, then hand-carved, painted, and colored.

-- The Process Of Reborning A Doll

The process of making the reborn dolls is complex and detail-oriented. Reborners start with doll kits, including heads, arms, legs, cloth bodies, hair, and even eyes and eyelashes. If using a doll that's already painted, Reborners will soak the kit in a chemical solution to remove the original paint finish. Doll kits are already blank with no finish applied.

Reborners then paint the blank kit with dozens of different colors to give it a realistic human skin effect, including veins, folds, spots, nails, lips, fine lines, eyebrows, and more, before baking at a set temperature.

For hair, common methods of making hair include painting, rooting or microrooting. Rooting are done by inserting multiple strands of hair into each socket, while microrooting is one strand per socket, which is the most time-consuming and realistic method. Some Reborners choose wigs according to their needs.

Then, to make sure the doll weighs as much as a real baby, the head and body are filled with appendages, either particles or fibers, to gain weight. Many dolls also have features that simulate a heartbeat and sound, Or with a respirator, or have magnets embedded in their mouths to carry a magnetic pacifier.

Finally, assemble all the doll parts and put on the clothes you want. A complete reborn doll is finished!

From the birth of the reborn doll to the present, new technology and inspiration are constantly injected, allowing artists to maximize their reborn doll to give the most realistic appearance and touch. Of course, it is precisely because of the exquisite details, high technical requirements, ultra-lifelike and irreplaceable role that the Reborn doll can be called exquisite art.
