This is an optional step designed to warm the vinyl of a very pale doll sculpt (white vinyl, or pale yellow). Using three colors. Skip this step if your vinyl is already a beautiful base flesh hue. This module also includes how to set up your workspace and prep your convection oven for setting heat set paint.
This is an optional step designed to neutralize the vinyl of an overly orange, yellow, gray, or pink base. Please reference chart #1.2 Neutralizing. Skip this step if your vinyl is already a nice base hue. This module also includes how to set up your work space and prep your convection oven for setting heat set paint.
Using three colors this module is designed to start detailing your doll sculpt. Adding depth and realism. Refer to your reference chart #2 for painting veins and undertones (go as detailed as you like). And start to build color and life with first blushing.
Now to start bringing your doll to life in a real way! This step is designed to crease deep and subtle creases over your entire sculpt. Using two different crease shades, you will add depth and dimension to the sculpt. And continue to build off the blushing you did the day before, adding more life and glow to your baby. You will also use the very same colors to paint your dolls lips and lids.
This module covers everything you need to paint the inside of an open mouth, including gums, taste buds, creating depth, and veins on the underside of the tongue. You’ll also see examples of three other types of open mouths.
This stage focuses on adding depth to your doll’s overall skin tone. Using three pale washes and mottling brushes. A tutorial on creating your own realistic mottling sponges is also provided at the start of the video.
Using three more colors, add even MORE depth and realism to your doll’s skin. This step adds more life to your sculpt, with subtle shades (just like a real newborn’s skin has). An additional 7th mottling shade is included and can be optionally applied for effect.
This module covers adding extremely realistic details and finishing touches to your painted doll sculpt. From adding capillaries to eyelids, cheeks, ears, and thinner skin patches; adding milia (milk pimples) to baby’s nose; and additional thin skin undertones. These steps are optional based on your comfort level and painting style. And tipping baby’s nails (this is not optional). This module also covers how to add a dewy skin finish to your doll and texturing.
This step can be done at any point during the reborn process, and walks you through which eyes to use for an open eyed sculpt and the easiest way to insert, position, and set eyes. Full round glass eyes are recommended for ease and realism, but flat back glass eyes can be inserted and set the same way.
This module walks you through how to seal your doll’s skin (to protect the paint and remove any shininess on the vinyl). It also covers the way for painting brows realistically using only three lines. Please reference your chart 7.1. And painting barely there hair (the easiest method for painting hair on a reborn doll, no artistic skill required). Instantly transform any bald baby into a valuable baby with a realistic newborn head of hair using just pencils and a wash of paint.
This is an optional step, if you want a reborn doll with a thicker head of baby hair. This module teaches you how to paint a thicker head of hair and builds off the hair pattern you painted in Module 9 (Day 7, Part 1). It also takes you through sealing your painted head of hair. If you only want a barely there head of hair, you will need to watch the end of this video to see how to seal the head of hair and seal the skin once more.
How to combi your reborn doll. Combi is short for combination hair, painted hair + rooted hair. This step shows you where and how to root hair into your existing painted head of hair. This hair style is very uncommon and highly prized amongst reborn collectors for its realism and ease of styling. This module also covers rooting lashes in your reborn doll, how to angle your rooting tool, which rooting needle & size of rooting needle to use, and proper micro rooting technique. As well as how to find quality mohair.
An alternative to painted hair, this module covers everything you need to know to micro root a head of hair on your reborn doll. It also includes how to angle your rooting tool, which rooting needle & size of rooting needle to use, and how (and why) to find quality mohair. If you prefer rooted hair, you can skip the prior modules devoted to day 7, hair (minus brows & sealing brows) and skip straight to this module. This module also includes cutting and styling your rooted head and techniques on how to avoid strain or injury when rooting for long periods of time.
In this module you learn how to root lashes on an open eyed doll sculpt, as well as styling and trimming lashes to create a realistic newborn look.

This is an amazing course with a fabulous teacher. She is a 1 of a kind artist that has been a mentor and friend to many of us. I have made so many awesome friends in our A to Z Facebook group. I cant say enough about this class, teacher, group. Its been life changing for me. I am now working full time as a reborn artist. Last month I made over $5000
I was as a brand new beginning artist who had never painted a reborn before. I found the course to be extremely comprehensive and easy to follow, and included everything from gathering the supplies and knowing what to buy all the way to photography and marketing the doll. I kept the first few I made, and then sold two dolls before I started getting requests for custom orders. I have now sold 4 dolls, with 4 more custom orders in the works and have been enjoying a nice supplement to my income through a really fun hobby. Shaylen is a talented artist and business person and I think that even experienced artists can benefit from her course. I highly recommend her course to new and experienced artists alike.
I have nothing but positive things to say. As a stay at home Mom and a lover of all things art this is the perfect thing for me. This course laid everything out for me, the techniques... are easy to follow and produce amazing results. My first doll sold after only three days on the market thanks to the wonderful advice provided. This course is worth every penny and has saved me hundreds on unnecessary supplies.
