Description of Luka
Newborn Luka is a sweet, realistic sculpt by Rachel Maynard. He has 3/4 arms and full legs, with a doe suede contoured cloth body. He is weighted to nearly 5 pounds with Glass Beads and Poly-Pellets. All internal weighting supplies are professionally concealed, glued, and lined respectively. He has strong magnets concealed behind his mouth for a pacifier. His body is flexible and "floppy - his head will need support as you hold him.
Luka's Mohair is a soft and shiny brown and light brown color. (Hair Styling suggestions found here.) His silky mohair is directionally hand rooted with an ultra fine German 43G forked needle - only one or two hairs at a time in the pattern of natural hair growth. Luka has a swirling crown and whispy eyelashes are also rooted in brown mohair. All his hair is sealed inside with two layers of Water-proof sealant and lined with felt. It can be gently washed when necessary. Spritzing Mohair conditioner and a little Baby Oil will keep her hair styled and lovely! I like to style the baby's hair while wet and let it air dry in place.
Luka's newborn skintones were created with Genesis Heat Set paints in a rainbow of colors in dozens upon dozens of layers to create depth and realism. He has painted brown eyebrows. All of his skin is sealed with a thin, textured layer of transparent medium for protection and added realism. Her mouth and tongue, lips, eye waterline, nostrils, and nails are coated with either a glossy or satin medium for appropriate realistic finishes.
