What to look for !!

When purchasing a Reborn Baby be sure to ask questions, you may think you are buying a bargain or even paying for a quality Reborn Baby but what are you really getting. Always ask questions and if the seller or Artist won't answer that should set off alarm bells.

Firstly you need to ask what type of paints were used and how many layers were applied. Some artist will only put a few layers on and think they have painted the baby enough when a real artist will take time and many many hours and days creating a very realistic effect with sometimes 15 or more layers of paint. 

Second is the hair. What quality mohair are they using? Are they micro rooting it or just punching it in quickly to get baby finished for sale. These all make a huge difference in the final finish of a baby. Cheap mohair can be hard to brush and end up with a dread lock effect when quality mohair will be soft, easy to brush and won't fall out as much.

Thirdly and this is a big issue......whats inside? I have heard of buyers receiving babies with rocks, aquarium pebbles, old clothes and even toilet paper inside!!! YUK. Your baby should be filled with the finest quality Glass Beads, Polyfill and the glue used inside should also be quality. 

There is of course many add ons some artist's will go the further mile to use. Remember hours and hours of work and love go into creating these babies. You get what you pay for in most cases but ask questions and find a reputable artist who won't let you down.
