I use soft vinyl body parts and earth magnets. In the body and limbs I use extra soft baby fat pellets with fine glass beads for weighting all contained in a nylon and surrounded with poly fill supreme stuffing. I use poly pellets and stuffing in the limbs. I use layers of heat set Genesis paints and premium mohair also. I also use polymer eyes as these are the most realistic eyes I have seen and what most people comment about when looking closely at one of my babies.
