Granny P's Reborn Nursery

My name is Paula and I started reborning in August 2018.

I have always been quite crafty and love creating things.

This is my first ever doll show and I’m so excited to be a part of it, I cannot wait for the live shows to return so I can experience those too. How I became a reborn artist……… As a child I had a baby doll I adored this doll she was my pride and joy. She had been stored in my parents loft for the last 25ish years and in the summer of last year they were moving house and so needed to sort through all the stored stuff.

When I saw the boxes with her in I just had to get her out and have a cuddle, this led to my mum making a comment about reborn dolls and how she was surprised I had never looked at them.

That got me thinking and within a week I had my first kit and was watching hours and hours of youtube tutorial videos and began my journey, I have now made many dolls and believe each and every one is better than the last as I learn something new every time I pick up a paint brush.

I use air dry Ultimate Fusion paints in many layers to create realistic skin tones and detailing, all dolls are then sealed with soft touch varnish. Dolls are weighted with quality glass beads and soft fibre fill.

They have strong magnets behind their lips and come with a magnetised dummy. I love to make things pretty so all my dolls will come with a beautiful box opening, care sheet, birth certificate and COA (if applicable).

I also make magnetic dummies, dummy clips and sealed fake milk bottles as well as having a large collection of pre-loved clothing on my website. Visit Website Visit Facebook Group
