Meet Baby #22
born March 11, 2014 at 2:05 pm.
5 lbs., 14 oz.            22 in.

Evan is a custom-ordered baby. He lives in Alabama.
Because each Heartstrings Nursery baby is an individually hand-crafted,
one-of-a-kind work of art, Evan cannot be duplicated.

Evan was lovingly created from Donna RuBert's retired "Eliza" sculpt.

He has an anatomically correct full torso and 3/4 length limbs.

To achieve Evan's baby complexion, multiple layers of
Genesis Heat Set Paints were hand-applied, and each layer was baked
to ensure that his baby skin will retain its beautiful detail forever.

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

His silky soft Blonde Slumberland mohair was micro-rooted by hand,
in a natural growth pattern, one or two strands at a time, with a
fine gauge needle, sealed from inside with waterproof glue, then cut and styled.

Evan has gorgeous Woodland Green eyes with amazingly realistic detail.
Long blonde lashes were hand-applied, and his 3-dimensional eyebrows
were painted on with a superfine brush to give them a barely-there appearance.
His skin and brows were then texturized for incredible realism.

Evan's little boy torso is lined with a jointed, doe suede body.
His little limbs, head, and body are weighted with tiny glass beads
and filled with silky soft 100% premium polyester

fiberfill and baby powder wafers, to give him the look, feel,
and sweet smell of a newborn.

Moist looking lips complete with little spit bubbles, a hint of baby tears,
a moist nose, and tiny manicured fingernails and toenails
add to the realism of this little boy.

His little nose has been opened, shaded for depth, and backed with purple felt,
to give the appearance of "breathing". He has a magnet behind
his mouth so he can take a modified magnetic pacifier.

Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Evan bears the artist's signature.
He traveled home with his birth certificate signed by the artist,
a beautiful layette, and his favorite little stuffed animal.

Petit Ami Light Blue Sailboat Romper with Bib and Hat,
Light Blue Socks and White Crib Shoes
