Many of us in this community appreciate that silicone and reborn babies are a true work of art.
I know that some people will occasionally say that the price for them is too high.
But just take a moment to think about this.
Every true silicone or reborn baby has been made by hand.
Each sculpt has been a result of hours and hours of work.
By the time the blank sculpts reach the artists they are then painted and rooted by hand.
This can take hours to get right.
It also starts to show how each and every doll created even if it is using the same sculpt, is truly one of a kind.
Why you may ask?
Well the answer is really simple, when you paint by hand there are so many variables that can change that it is impossible for two silicone and reborn babies to be the same.
Even if the difference is the most minimal one, there will still be a difference.
It could be something as simple as a small amount extra blue or red has been added.
A new brush stroke was used.
The light in the room may be different meaning that the paint looked slightly different for the artist.
There really are countless reasons why they are different.
Now I am not talking about those rip off factory kits that look like something you can pick up in a supermarket for £10.
I’m talking about the real reborn and silicone dolls.
The ones that as a collector, are the ones we should all have in our collection.
So yes these dolls are a work of art not a toy and they are one of a kind.
As such it should help to try and explain the cost of these dolls a little more I hope.
