Name: Precious Gift
Reborn Date: 10 May 2012
Weight: 4 lb
Length: 20 inches

This beautiful baby girl was reborn from a Cindy Musgrove Precious Gift sculpt. A precious gift is exactly what she is. Precious Gift's realistic newborn skin tone was created using many layers of Genesis Heat Set Paints (GHSP). GHSP are high quality artist pigments. Each layer of GHSP must be baked in an oven at specific temperature for a certain amount of time. GHSP will not fade, rub off, or chip. It takes many hours to create a realistic looking reborn baby.
Precious Gift was given a base flesh tone employing three different flesh colors, subtle veining, mottling in several different colors and shades for added depth, capillaries, stork bites, highlighting and shading. Precious Gift was given various color washes between flesh tones and other layers including but not limited to greens, blues, lavenders, yellows, etc. Each wash and layer increases the depth and realism. Close attention was paid to every detail.
Precious Gift was given meticulously hand painted hair. It takes several hours to create a realistic head of "hair". Each layer of 'hair' is sealed. Several layers of 'hair' are added to create dimension. Hand painted hair has several advantages.
• It always looks nice and neat.
• It does not require the maintenance that genuine mohair does.
• It will not shed.
• It will not deteriorate as natural fibers can have a tendency to do.
• It will not irritate people with allergies to animal hair.
Precious Gift has delicate, wispy eyebrows as well as a the illusion of lanugo (fine downy hairs) on his forehead. Her nails have been sealed for added protection. Her lips were lightly glossed to appear moist. Precious Gift's nose has been gently opened and backed with dark felt. She has delicate premium mohair eyelashes rooted with a German forked needle. She has been lightly scented to smell like a freshly bathed and powdered baby.

Precious Gift's head and 3/4 limbs are high quality vinyl from Bountiful Baby. Her faux suede body was purchased through Bountiful Baby. Precious Gift was weighted and stuffed with the best poly pellets, fine glass beads, and hypoallergenic poly fill in order to make her feel just like a real baby. Her head has been weighted. Therefore, her head must be supported like a real infant's.
Precious Gift was created to be an heirloom quality collectible. She is not a child's toy or play doll. She has features and small parts that are unsuitable for children under the age of fourteen-years-old. All my baby's are created in a smoke free, pet friendly environment. I always number and sign my dolls. I also supply paper work for each doll. I put my name on my dolls. I have extremely high standards. Therefore, I will never sell or put my name on a doll that I would not be proud to place in my own collection.

Precious Gift's images were captured with a Sony Cybershot digital camera under a variety of different lighting including natural light, indoor lighting, and outdoor lighting. Other than cropping and resizing to bring out fine details, I do not alter my photographs.
