Like many young girls, award winning doll maker Tasha Edenholm was enchanted by her Grandmother’s doll collection. She was so taken in fact, that it wasn’t long before Tasha had a growing collection of her own. Collecting however soon lost its appeal. “I always wanted to create my own dolls,” she said, “and I’ve always had a passion for infants.” Since then, her greatest love as been sculpting newborn babies. “I am always striving to learn and develop new techniques so that I can make each and every baby as realistic and unique as possible.”
Tasha does not work from pictures, but instead sculpts each piece from a vivid picture that she has created in her mind. Once the clay sculpture is finished, she makes the molds and casts the babies with Dragon Skin® silicone. Then skillfully hand paints each detail, using Psycho Paint® pigmented with Silc Pig® silicone pigments, Tasha makes them come to life. All of her babies are completely hand made and "One-Of-A-Kind". A limited run of 10 to 15 babies are cast from each mold and sell out within 24 to 48 hours of being posted on her web site. You can view more of Tashas work at www.tashasbabies.com.
