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.

Mottling is one of my favorite reborning steps. This is where the doll really starts to look like a real baby!
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.
