~Master Artist Series~
Welcome Sweet Newborn Ashleigh!
**Please note: After her first photo shoot, I decided to see if I could eliminate the shine from her face. I succeeded and added a few more pictures of her noting that they are the "Updated Pictures".**
Birthdate: December 10, 2012 @ 9:33 am
Length: 18 inches with chubby, bent legs
Weight: 4 pounds
Reborn baby #277
Ashleigh was reborn from the newborn kit
"Ashleigh" by Olivia Stone.
She is #21 of the limited edition of 250 kits.
She was painted using the new
Art and Magic Water Borne Air Dry Paints.
She was my "test" baby with these new paints and I am quite pleased with them! She has all the depth and details expected with any high quality artist paints. Be sure to view all of her photos and simply click on each one if you would like a closer look.
I have given her a matte finish using Folk Art Glass and Tile Medium. She is smooth to the touch and lovely to look at. I have NO apprehensions of the durability of her paint and finish.
Ashleigh has 3/4 limbs on a jointed, flannel German body.
She is weighted with contained granulated glass beads, contained BB pellets, plastic pellets and fiber fill.
I have tucked real baby powder sachets inside her body to keep her smelling baby fresh.
I've given her dark grey eyes and partial lashes, perfect for her newborn age. Her nostrils are opened and backed with felt and she has a magnetic pacifier.
Her hair is directionally micro-rooted using a small needle and first clip angora goat hair that I hand process myself using acid dyes. The dark hair will not bleed or fade. It is very soft and feels heavenly when snuggled to the cheek. It stays styled with a simple brushing.
