Use these four colors over and over again to create lifelike baby nails on all of your reborn dolls!
Mottling is the process of adding multi-colored layers of delicate patterns to create the appearance of blood flowing under baby’s skin. I put a lot of care into creating my mottling sponges because I reuse them over and over again to create gorgeous skin texture on my lifelike baby dolls.
There are a variety of suitable materials for mottling sponges, including sea sponges and bath sponges. I prefer to work with a firm cosmetic wedge which gives me more control over the pattern and more consistent results.

I've been getting a lot of questions about Dewy Skin, so I decided to try it out!
Dewy Skin medium, by Precious Little Baby Dust, is a heat-set medium that can be used to seal the paint, create lifelike skin texture and sheen for glowing baby skin.
Through my tests, I found that it works fine for all of these purposes.
- Add time (not heat) for a proper cure. 15 minutes at 250 F works well for me.
- Bake while wet for sheen. Let it dry then bake for matte.
- I forgot to cure a piece and left it over night. It turned white like matte varnish would, but did bake clear.
Where to buy it?
Hi! I am Kim. I've been creating dolls all my life. I started stuffing cotton balls into my mom's pantyhose when I was a little girl. Now I hand-craft dolls that look and feel like real babies.
