CHANTELLE
born April 24, 2015 at 4:11 p.m.
4 lbs., 8 oz.            19 in.


CHANTELLE is a custom-ordered baby. She lives in TASMANIA, AUSTRALIA
Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Chantelle is a one-of-a-kind creation.


Precious little newborn angel!
 
Chantelle was lovingly created from Linda Murray's "Chloe" sculpt.
This anatomically correct sculpt was created to look like a newborn
only hours old. Her eyes are just slightly open as though she is seeing her
new world for the first time. She is crafted from the finest quality German vinyl
that shows every little crease and fold, making her look incredibly realistic.

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 dark 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 and then cut and baby-styled.

Ileana was given individually mouth-blown dark blue
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.

Chantelle has fully jointed full length limbs,
an anatomically correct doe-suede-lined torso.


Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Chantelle went home with
a signed birth certificate, a sculptor's COA, a Heartstrings Nursery COA,
a handmade ID bracelet,
and her favorite little stuffed animal.
