Baby "Laura" PROTOTYPE portrait of Laura Tuzio-Ross
from her new self-portrait sculpt
Hand signed by Laura Tuzio-Ross on the cloth body
My name is Melissa Cavanaugh and I am the award winning artistat Bella's Babies by the Bay - Reborn Nursery. I strive to make the finest life-like reborn baby dolls. My goal is to achieve the ultimate in realism and capture the true spirit and essence of a real live baby. I recently won the honor of "Best Reborn Baby" 2011 from the International Colliii Awards for my Jayden by Natalie Scholl.
"Laura" is the newest kit by the popular and talented sculpting artist Laura Tuzio-Ross.This gorgeous kit was sculpted by Laura as a self-portrait of herself and she personally asked me to reborn this prototype as a portrait of her as a baby. She is a larger baby and wears size 0-3 months and 3 months size clothing perfectly. The vinyl of this kit was wonderful to work with and is highly detailed.Shewas an absolute pleasure to work on from beginning to end. Many many hoursand lots of love went into creating her.
Thank you so very much to Laura Tuzio-Ross for giving me the opportunity to bring this very special little beauty to life.
Laura's kit can be ordered directly from Laura Tuzio-Ross on her website.
