I have been offering painted hair for hire for a while now for customers who have inquired and a few fellow reborn artists but never put up official details. So here they are!
One of my very fave parts of reborning is painting hair. I am always revising my technique to achieve the most realistic head of infant hair. I paint following a natural direction of hair growth, with a realistic swirl. I paint every follicle using the tiniest fine liner brush and texture my painted hair to feel real. I can paint any style, any thickness, in any hair colour. I also paint baby fine hairs around the temple and paint brows too to match baby’s hair. The hair always gathers naturally at the nape of the neck. I can also create bald spots that are naturally visible on real newborn infants.
I’ve been painting hair on my reborn babies since my very first reborn baby almost 2 years ago. Here are some more pics of my babies.
I charge $150 for a head of hair (any size) + shipping (you pay to ship your head to me, & return shipping). There may be a $25 discount added if you’re looking for fine, barely there style hair. I can also make any baby combi for $50 more. This includes hair, rooting needles, and sealing with waterproof adhesive.
My turnaround time is about 2-4 days for painted hair, 1 week for combi. I will also root eyelashes or darken/correct eyebrows free of charge. To inquire or start the process, email me at email@example.com. I am available for personal use or for ongoing painted hair for fellow reborn doll artists who are looking to expand their business. I require $50 at the time of shipping baby (or baby’s head), and the balance when baby is ready to head home.
