Meet Baby #81
GABRIELE
born August15, 2015 at 6:41 p.m.
5 lbs., 12 oz.            20 in.


Gabriele is a custom-ordered baby. He lives in Japan.
Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Gabriele is a one-of-a-kind creation.


Handsome little guy!
 
Gabriele was lovingly created from Adrie Stoete's "Melody" sculpt.
Multiple layers of Baby FX air-dry paint were hand-applied,
then each layer was fully cured to ensure that his 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.

His incredibly soft dark brown Delta Dawn
mohair was 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.


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


His 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 boy.


His nose has been opened, shaded, 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, Gabriele went home with
a signed birth certificate, a sculptor's COA, a Heartstrings Nursery COA,
a handmade ID bracelet,
and his favorite little stuffed duck.
