I am Stephanie Ortiz, also known as nlovewithreborns2011. I have been collecting reborn dolls since 2011. I started creating reborns about two months after collecting them. I learned my skills from my wife. I have taken what she has taught me and came up with my own style of painting. Not only do I create dolls, but I have a very successful YouTube channel where I share my hobby and talent with the world. Creating reborn babies isn’t a must in my life, it is a passion.
“It’s not art, it’s love” – nlovewithreborns2011
Don’t be afraid to attend this advanced class, even though it is an advance class I can teach anyone how to paint just like me, beginner or advanced you are all welcome.
I will be teaching students techniques I use when creating reborn at an advanced level. I am going to teach you how to reach outside of your normal reborn box. Here you will use a vase aray of bright fun warming washes to create your baby. Matter of fact we will not even use a flesh wash to create our reborn. You might be thinking, no flesh, she is crazy. But trust me, you will create a reborn under my direction and it will look very similar to my work once done. Your Reborn baby will have skin tone depth and detail; this baby is going to have lots of depth to achieve a very young newborn look. I will also be teaching mixing of washes, blushing colors, creasing color, veins color mix, blending, scratches and pimples.
As long as time allows, I am aiming for everyone to leave with a fully painted reborn kit, if you don’t finish you will have access to a tutorial at home! After the doll show you will also be added to my Facebook group “nlovewithreborns2011 reborn students”. In this group you will have access to tutorials. This will be a place for you to share your work and ask questions without being judged. We are all in that group to learn and have fun.
