How does it work?
Each silicone and vinyl kit begins with a clay sculpt. It takes several weeks to complete a sculpt. If you want to have a portrait baby sculpted, this is where we start: Phase 1 - the Sculpt
Depending on the size of the sculpt you choose, this service costs approximately 4,500 USD.
When the sculpt is completed, the mold gets made. That can take up several weeks, depending on the style of mold for each sculpt. After the completion of the mold, the silicone gets cast. The Molding and Casting is Phase 2 and costs about 1,000 USD.
At this point, either the blank silicone kit is sold to artists to be painted or the painting process begins right here in the studio. I typically paint 2 or so of the kits myself for sale. This will be determined by the goal: blank kits for sale, a one-time commission baby, completed babies only etc. Completed babies range approximately 1,000 USD to 5,000 USD.
Painting is followed by rooting hair into the baby's head. Each of these process is very time consuming and varies. If you are interested in a commission, I encourage you to get in touch for a quote >
