Some artists customize the dolls to customers’ requirements by using the photograph of the baby to be replicated. The methods of making reborn dolls involve several steps, such as:

- Giving natural baby skin tones by adding several different flesh colored paints
- Applying hair by wig or micro rooting and many other steps to make the doll have a lifelike appearance
- The bodies of reborn dolls are stuffed with such materials to weight to like a live baby.
