Silicone Class


 Hi, my name is Susan Gibbs. I am a reborn artist, a

dolly seamstress, a beginner silicone pourer and an
aspiring sculptor. I’ve been in the reborn industry
since 2009. I painted my first silicone doll in 2014 and
I loved it! Since then I’ve spent hours researching on
silicones and silicone painting. My goal is to make it
my field of expertise. I’m privileged to have worked
with several silicone prototypes and more on deck. I
would love to share my own painting techniques to
those who want to try their hands at silicone
