||I would like you to know,
when I'm making the dolls, I'm not actually sculpting the faces, ....
I'm working with pre-existing molds (faces). When I receive a picture, I
try to match up the face with one of the many faces I have. Then match
the hair and eye color. (This usually works very well, as you've seen
from the samples above.) I will not be able to make a exact duplicate of
your child ... just try for a close match.
It takes about a year to make an original
mold, first an artist sculpts a head from clay, then from the clay
sculpture a wax mold is made, alterations are then made before the
finial mold can be made .... it takes many tries to get it just
right and cost about ten thousand dollars to make the original mold.
This is the way most all companies who make dolls to look like your
child work ... as stated above it would be very costly to make an actual
mold of each child.
