Sculpt Commission ~ How does it work?
Each silicone and vinyl doll kit begins with a clay sculpt. It takes me several weeks to complete the sculpting process.
You want your own portrait baby sculpted? This is where we start:
Phase 1 - the Sculpt
Depending on the size of the sculpt you choose (preemie, newborn, toddler), prices for this service vary. I will need several measurements and high-quality images from various angles. This phase includes your consultation and progress images. The cost of this phase are different for each customer and will be covered after the consultation.
PHASE 2 - molding and casting
When the sculpt is completed, the mold for a silicone kit gets made. That can take up several weeks, depending on the style of mold for each sculpt. Vinyl kits get molded at the factory while silicone molding occurs here at the studio. After the completion of the mold, the silicone gets cast.
The cost is approximately 2,000 USD depending on the size.
PHASE 3 - completed baby doll
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 about 2 kits myself for sale. This will be determined by the overall goal: blank kits for sale, a one-time commission baby, or completed babies only etc. Completed babies have a large price range starting at about 1,000 USD depending on size and style. Each commission is uniquely tailored to fit the needs of my clients.
Painting is followed by rooting hair into the baby's head. Each of these process is very time consuming and varies in detail. If you are interested in a commission, I encourage you to get in touch for a quote for a specific baby. Get a quote today at firstname.lastname@example.org or messenger
