Meet Baby #41
born October 11, 2014 at 4:26 pm.
8 lbs., 1 oz.            24 in.

Ariah Rayne is a custom ordered baby. She lives in New York.
Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Ariah Rayne is a one-of-a-kind creation.

This little girl is absolutely stunning!
Ariah Rayne was lovingly created from Jessica Schenk's  "Rowan" sculpt.
Multiple layers of Genesis Heat Set Paints were hand-applied,
then each layer was baked to ensure that her baby skin
will retain its beautiful detail forever.

Subtle veins, lightly mottled newborn skin, blushing and tiny capillaries
were painstakingly applied to create the look of a real baby.

Her incredibly soft chocolate brown Delta Dawn
mohair curls were micro-rooted by hand,

one or two strands at a time, with a fine gauge needle,
sealed from inside with waterproof glue, then cut and styled.

Ariah was given individually mouth-blown medium brown
German glass eyes, her l
ong dark brown lashes were hand-applied
and her 3-dimensional eyebrows were painted on
with a superfine brush
to give them a fine, baby-soft appearance.

Her little limbs, head, and jointed doe suede body are weighted
with tiny glass beads and filled with silky soft 100% premium polyester
fiberfill and baby powder wafers, to give her the look, feel,
and sweet smell of a newborn.

Moist looking lips, a hint of baby tears and tiny manicured
fingernails and toenails add to the realism of this little girl.

Her nose has been opened, shaded, and backed with purple felt,
to give the appearance of "breathing". She has a magnet behind
her mouth so she can take a modified magnetic pacifier.

Ariah has fully jointed 3/4 length arms and legs.

Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Ariah went home with
a signed birth certificate, a Heartstrings Nursery COA,
a handmade ID bracelet,
and her favorite little stuffed doll.
