Please welcome Rafael! I call him “Rafie” for short. Rafael was made from the Rina kit sculpted by Michelle Fagan. He has a painted vinyl head, ¾ arms and legs, and a jointed cloth body. Rafael is 22 inches long and weighs 5 pounds 9 ounces. I’ve dressed him in size 0-3 months clothes, but he can also wear smaller 3-6 months sized clothes. Top to Toe Rafael has been painted with Genesis Heat Set Paints. He has painted black hair. He has deep brown acrylic eyes and applied black lashes. There is a magnet behind his lips for a pacifier. Rafael’s realistic ethnic skintone was achieved by a sixteen layer process that includes, creasing and shading, subtle veining, mottling, blushing, and glossing. His cloth body, head, and limbs have been realistically weighted with fine glass beads and stuffed with polyfill. Rafael’s Layette Rafael will come home with everything in his pictures. · blank birth certificate (so you can name him anything you want) · gray magnetic pacifier · outfit with two onesies, pants, socks, bib, and hat · pennant flannel receiving blanket As always, if you see Rafael as a girl, just ask and I will send her home with a similar layette for a girl. Thanks for looking and I will see you at the ROSE Doll Show in 2021. About the Artist: Near and Far Reborn Doll Nursery I am a reborn doll collector-turned-artist.
