Have you ever come across images of newborn babies that are smaller than their grandmothers? Surely when you see it, you will have to utter surprise because of the super cuteness of the babies. Then you will worry again, so small babies how to maintain life?
However, rest assured, the world’s smallest newborn baby also weighs 2 kg, the feet are as big as the fingers of an adult. So the images you see below are just wonderful works of a Canadian female sculptor named Camille Allen.
Accordingly, with her talent and meticulousness, CamilleAllen has created a collection of Newborns made of almond flour and egg white that are perfect and lively. From wrinkles, lines in hands, feet, facial expressions of the baby all make viewers feel amazingly real.
Camille Allen shared, she learned this craft of making dolls from her husband’s grandmother more than 8 years ago. At first she made the large ones, then after a year of becoming more proficient she began to sculpt smaller figures. For the making of these lifelike and lifelike newborn dolls, Camille had to use special tools to be able to make the smallest details, from fingerprints, toe prints, to folds. wrinkles on the body of an infant, in an extremely meticulous and precise way. Currently, the female artist receives a lot of orders to make super baby baby dolls. Here are some adorable pictures of these newborn babies.
Features are delicately carved out of the clay as using a crafting tool, finishing with an adorable, tiny newborn ready to show off to her customers.
Explaining the process, Camille said: ‘Starting from a lump of clay, and tiny tools iпcluding toothpicks, sculpting a lifesize or miniature baby begins. It takes many, many hours of patient concentration to form a realistic baby and finish with fine details – including wrinkles and fingernails.
The babies have soft English mohair to imitate fine baby hair and are blushed with paints for realism to enhance their tiny wrinkles and creases.’
The life size dolls inspired Camille to have a go at her own creations, specialising in the miniature babies – which she has dubbed ‘Egg Babies’. Camille said: ‘The first miniature baby I made was curled in a fetal position, and I even gave it an umbilical cord, as if it was still in the womb. The shape and size of the baby seemed similar to that of an egg shell. I tried this, and the baby fit perfectly inside an egg!
‘This was how the idea of “Egg Babies” was born. I think the fragile newborn baby is complimented by the egg shell, reminding us of how fragile new life is and how gently they must be treated and cared for. Later I tried sculpting a baby inside a seashell – thus the “Shell Babies”.
Each item costs anywhere from $99 for a single newborn to $1,500 for an intricate sculpture of hugging twins, and can all be foυnd on Camille’s website.
