The process of reborning baby dolls usually involves the following techniques:
* The original doll will be disassembled, and all of the factory paint will be removed.
* A color wash in a purplish tint will be used on the inside of every vinyl piece to give the appearance of realistic baby skin under tones.
* The appearance of translucent skin tones is created, using various artistic techniques. Some effects are added carefully, such as blotching, milk spots, veins and other effects that will help resemble the skin of a newly born baby.
