Silicone babies are dolls made of silicone that are sculpted to look and feel like a real human newborn or baby. Individual artists usually make them in small batches.
To create the silicone baby, an artist sculpts a mold out of clay, which he can then reproduce using silicone. The silicone used for these dolls is usually an ultra-soft platinum grade to ensure the realism and quality of the doll. The artist paints and clothes the doll to look realistic. The result is a soft and delicate doll that needs to be treated much like a real newborn baby to keep it in good condition.
