Introducing my Precious Little Peter

Hi folks! ....and welcome to my new blog dedicated to one of a kind (OOAK) mini baby sculpts created by me. Introducing precious little Peter, my very first OOAK mini baby sculpt.
In April this year I stumbled across OOAK dolls on Ebay and just had to find out more about them. I did a bit of research on the Internet, bought some magazines and found out about the Discover Dolls international show to be held in Peterborough in June.
Reborn Artist and Sculptor Cath Roberts was teaching a class on how to sculpt a mini baby which I just had to attend. My precious little Peter (Peterborough influenced the name) was completed on the day. The class was amazing! I learnt so much and it has really ignited my passion for sculpting. It is something I have always wanted to try. It is truly amazing to see a little sculpt emerging from the clay.

I'm really looking forward to making more babies (tee hee) and having a go at making 'cuties' that are more caricatures which I think will be more my style.
I'll be starting a separate blog for my sculpts to be called 'Tia Nena's Nursery'. I had a long think about what I would call the baby blog and all the cute names I could think of had already been taken. Even suggestions by the mastermind of Mr. Dry! So I decided to use a name that is personal to me. I have always been called Nena by my folks and others in my family. Since the age of 10 I have been an Aunty which is 'Tia' in Spanish. So for more years than I care to remember I have been called Tia Nena by my nephews and nieces. Although it may sound a bit weird... it's still very much me!
I hope you like little Peter. Looking forward to reading your comments.
Ciao for now!

  2. Hi Sanra
    My youngest son was born with Down's Syndrome but he really was a most beautiful baby and I loved every little bit of him. Would love a wee version of him. He's now 23, an actor and getting married in sept, what a lovely way to celebrate!
