About Baby

Josianne is a full bodied silicone baby, with a ball jointed neck.  She is flexible and moves like a real baby.  (video link further down this page) 

I sculpted her from a ball of clay, which I have reproduced into a small edition of soft platinum silicone babies.  Her body is poured seamless, (one piece) with no glue etc.

I only use the highest grade Platinum silicone, and use different shore strengths (hardness) silicone on different parts of my babies, the harder silicone is used where I would need more strength for durability and less movement/flexibility etc on the doll and softer silicone where I would need more movement, making her move like a real baby.  You can see her movement in the short video. 

I have given her soft armature in her arms only, for elbow movement, not in her shoulders, so she is still very flexible and doesn't compromise this at all.  I love how her arms move.

My dolls heads are securely attached with a ball joint, making it easy to turn their head, with a very strong joint, making it impossible for the head to come off.   This is demonstrated in the video.

Josianne has been painted with special silicone paints, with beautiful coloring and soft mottling.  No detail has been missed on her.

She is totally adorable,  very realistic and is totally solid.   Being solid, her hair cannot be sealed inside her head, so extreme care must be taken with brushing etc, as her hair can come out.

I have painted her hair oh her whole head, not just the hairline, and rooted from the cut end,  very sparsely over this to give a realistic look.  

I have included a link to her video - below, to show this babies movement.

The baby in the video is baby #1 not this baby, but the exact same sculpt.

Please wait for the pics to load and enjoy!
