Many of our customers have inquired about how our Paradise Galleries dolls are made.
Here we illustrate the process behind the creation a reborn doll, which is a long, complex procedure that involves a range of experts and lots of love and care. 

Every Paradise Galleries reborn doll begins with the creation of a unique master sculpt. Each little head is expertly sculpted by artists from around the world and are created using a variety of mediums. Then, just like fine jewelry, the next step is to make a wax model, which is then developed into our first Master vinyl creation crafted out on one of our three exclusive vinyls; GentleTouch™, SoftTouch™ or FlexTouch™. 

Sculptor Ping Lau paints the hair on her sculpt of Baby Mei from her Maryland studio.

When the first master doll comes together, the head is outfitted with eyes, the vinyl is painted with blushing and those little detail touches of paint for the lower eye lashes and lips. Eye lashes are hand applied and the hair is painted, or the specified wig style is attached. Sometimes the hair may actually be rooted into the vinyl head. Each little finger and toenail are painted in our signature baby French manicure technique and the cloth bodies are stuffed and weighted with a bean bag for a more realistic baby feel.

Outfits are designed around the doll’s personal theme and fitted to their specific body type. Unique accessories are developed to compliment or provide comfort to the baby doll.

The completed first concept doll is reviewed to ensure that we can introduce the best possible baby who is beautifully unique, and true to the artist’s original. Every Paradise Galleries baby arrives in a gift box with our Certificate of Authenticity letting you know you’ve purchased a real Paradise Galleries baby.
