Here are the details at a glanceGoing Home with
Baby Stephen was
reborn from the limited edition vinyl Brayden kit sculpted by the very talented artist Nicole Russell. He is number 142/500
and will come with his certificate of authenticity. Her sculpts are becoming increasingly popular, and are a joy to work with
because of their life-like details; The Brayden sculpt is amazingly detailed and life-like, with so many little wrinkles.
I had a preemie baby boy, and I must say, she did a wonderful job of depicting a preemie baby. Baby Stephen
has full vinyl arms and legs that have been weighted with small glass beads and premium polyfill. He has
been carefully painted in several thin layers using Genesis heat set paints, they will not rub off or fade. His skin has
blue undertones and subtle veining. He has an unjointed white flannel body that has been weighted
with enclosed glass beads and premium soft polyfill to make him feel as life-like and cuddly as possible. His
head has also been weighted and can be gently turned. His arms can be moved, his legs cannot. I chose this body because
it seemed more in proportion to his head and limbs and also is really cute because you can let him wear sleeveless shirts
and just a diaper without seeing the body.
Baby Stephen has hand-painted hair using two shades of genesis heat set paints.
He has hand-painted eyebrows and his nose was opened and backed with dark felt for depth. His lips
were painted in many layers of genesis paints and lightly glossed.
Baby Stephen has hand-rooted eyelashes using very
good quality mohair and sealed from the inside of his head. His nails were painted a pale baby pink, then tipped with
genesis off-white paint to give his nails a transparent, natural look, then they were given a bit of gloss. Baby
Stephen does have a magnetic pacifier, please use caution around pacemakers.
Baby Stephen is a very tiny
baby, he is only 16 inches long with bent legs and weighs three pounds. He fits perfectly in the size preemie
line of Carter's clothing.
