Ten pink toes reborn nursery is located in Brisbane Australia.
My name is Julie Mitchell and I am proud to call myself a reborn artist. I absolutely enjoy taking a plain vinyl doll kit and adding detailed layers of genesis heat set paints and bringing a beautiful baby doll (or fake baby as some know them) to life.
To complete the affect of looking so realistically like a real baby many hours are spent micro-rooting quality mohair 1 or 2 fine hairs at a time on the dolls head.
Soft bodies are weighted with glass beads and filled with poly-fibre to feel just like a real baby. If you have never seen one you will be amazed at how real they look!
I love people's reactions when they see their first reborn doll. They tend to either just want a nurse (like they would a real baby) or get a bit "freaked out". Those people that get a bit freaked out usually warm up after a few minutes and are quite intrigued at the detail of the dolls.
The reborn dolls are a piece of 3D art and can become a family heirloom. Achieving incredible 3D (having depth), realistic skin tones is the ultimate goal of the artist. This is something that just improves and improves. Other features that separate the talented artist from everyone else are the fingers and toes, eyebrows and exquisite patterns of directional hair rooting some artists can achieve through endless hours of patience.
Ten pink toes specialises in making affordable reborn dolls suitable for children. These are premie size and have painted hair. But the attention to detail is in no way compromised because the doll will belong to a child.
I can make custom reborn dolls where clients can choose hair and eye colour and other details.
Who buys reborn dolls? people of all ages who love dolls or babies are discovering how wonderful these dolls are. Careful little mummies love them as do great grandmas. They can be dressed with pride and nursing them is soothing.
Want to give it a go? If you are artistic and have done some painting before and would like to give it a go then beginner lessons are a great way to start. I can help here (be warned it may become an addiction!!!!)
