Meet Baby #11
PEARL
born August 16, 2013 at 4:03 pm.
5 lbs., 2 oz.            18 in.


Pearl is a custom ordered baby. She lives in Nebraska, USA
All Heartstrings Nursery babies are one-of-a-kind, so there is only one "Pearl"
.


Tiny little Pearl looks breathtakingly real!
 

Pearl was lovingly created from Donna RuBert's  "Dumplin" sculpt.
Multiple layers of Genesis Heat Set Paints were hand-applied, and each layer was baked to ensure that her 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.

Her beautiful soft brown mohair was directionally 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.

She has gorgeous hazel Eyeco polyglass eyes with amazing realistic detail.
Her long brown lashes were hand-applied, and her three-dimensional
pale brown eyebrows were painted on with a superfine brush
to give them a barely-there appearance.


Little Pearl's 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 baby
.


No detail has been overlooked on this little angel.
Baby tears, moist looking lips, nose, and ears,
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.
 


Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Pearl went to her new home with
her birth certificate signed by the artist, an ID bracelet, a beautiful
layette, and her favorite little stuffed animal
.
