On occasion I get a question about how to pierce the ears on a reborn doll. Since Soniyah is going home with a little bling, I thought this would be a good time to record a quick ear piercing tutorial.
Piercing for me is the last step before assembly. I simply use a rooting needle to make a small hole and push my stud through it. You can warm the head if you need to, but stay under 100-degrees or you may start to melt lashes or adhesives. Be sure to let your customers know that earrings are a choking hazard, or use earrings that screw in and don't come out.
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.
