Silicone Doll

 About me.

My name is Romie Strydom, and I am the artist behind these dolls.

I have been making dolls since 1989. I was very fortunate to have found my passion in life all those years ago, and still strive everyday, to improve my skills in dollmaking, painting and sculpting. I thoroughly enjoy what I do and can’t imagine my life without dolls.

 

I sculpt babies from scratch,  without the use of any molds, to be reproduced into vinyl kits, to be offered to reborners (doll makers)  all over the world.

 

In 2010 I started producing very small editions of solid silicone babies, which have become my main focus now as I love creating from start to finish. I sculpt the babies in clay, and reproduce these myself into soft silicone, which I then paint and (micro root) apply hair on the heads.

These babies are offered in very small editions, only 10 dolls or less, worldwide. I only use Platinum grade silicone and love the results. I take a lot of care with my silicone babies as quality and finish is very important to me.

 

I am very grateful to my supporters and the collectors who buy my dolls, as without them I could not continue to do what I love.

 

Thanks for visiting my page and enjoy looking around.
