Getting Started in Reborning….

Since I’ve only started reborning in March 2021, I wasn’t sure I was knowledgeable enough to write this post. But then I decided, hey…everything is fresh…including my mistakes.

You’ll need something to dry your limbs and head on. A piece of 2×4 with some wooden dowels attached will work fine; but you can also get a Bottle Drying rack from any store, including Amazon… Just make sure it’s sturdy. I got a smallish one when I first started (and I still use it) but I wish I’d bought the large one!

Little air tight glass jars that you can get at any hobby shop for miniature or model paints work well for excess paint. Though not 100% needed, they are nice to avoid wasting paint.

UPDATE: After 9 months of reborning, I’ve found that using the PRIMARY METHOD (Blue, Red and Yellow) makes a LOT of sense….and using ANY of teh flesh colors (Flesh 07, Flesh 01, etc) can make your baby look CHALKY due to the white paint in the Flesh Colors. I no long recommend using Flesh Color, but other colors used in the mottling process can really give you a beautiful look

    Well done and well said. I do hope though your enjoying this new hobby after all that was said and done. I’m just starting out and the suggestions you mentioned here I had done. So I feel ok i wasn’t cheating too much when I went elsewhere for same type of supplies needed but at other places. So great job
