When Will You do another cloth body edition?

I don't know, I haven't decided what I will do next.


Can I sell my Spot ?

I don't sell spots. It gets too complicated and stressful making changes, especially in large editions. I will complete the transaction only with the person who originally bought a doll from me. If a collector wants to sell the doll after they receive it, I will not be a party in that transaction, that transaction will be,a separate transaction between the two collectors.


Do you make CUSTOM DOLLS?

NO, I do not take custom doll orders any more. When I complete new babies, I put them on my web site with the purchase information on the dolls web page. I send an email to my mailing list when I introduce a doll or when I auction babies on eBay. To be notified when babies are available.

How do I Place an Order?

I will not be taking any more orders. I prefer to make dolls and then I put them up for sale. That way collectors see the doll completed before they purchase the doll. The instructions to purchase a doll will be on the doll's page. I make a variety of dolls to meet many different collectors preferences. I make my dolls as realistic as I possibly can and I make various ethnicity, and use various eye color and hair colors.

Can you do a portrait dolls?

Although I love to do portrait dolls, but I do not do custom portrait dolls. If I see a baby's picture that catches my eye and I decide to make a doll of it, I do, but I am not going to do any more custom dolls i and that includes portraits. I use baby pictures as reference when sculpting new baby dolls. Most times I use a variety of pictures of different babies with similarities that portrays what I want in a doll.

I know the doll is sold out, but can you make more

in the future and how much will it cost?

When a doll edition is Sold Out, I do not make more. Cost is not a factor, I don't make more of the dolls after I have closed an edition.

Do you offer re-matting services? Do you repair dolls?

I do not offer re-matting services or spa days or for silicone dolls, I do no not receive dolls to check them over to see if they are in pristine condition. I have been making silicone dolls since 2007, so it's 11 years of doll editions. Recently I have been getting requests to re-mat or repaint dolls that were made 7- 10 years ago. I cannot offer services to repaint the dolls from past editions to be like my new dolls. There is just not enough time to include that service in my schedule. It is impossible for me to keep all past editions like new and also make new dolls also. My focus right now is on making new dolls.

When I make a doll, I stand by my work, and if there is a defect in a doll when a collector receives it, I will fix it for the first owner of the doll if I am contacted within a reasonable time, and the doll has not been obviously damaged by the collector. If the doll has been damaged because of rough handling or if the doll is not altered in any way, I will not repair the doll.

I do not fix dolls made by other artists.

I have not control over the way each collectors uses or handles their dolls.... therefore

I am not responsible for dolls bought on the secondary market.

I am not obligated to fix a doll bought on the secondary market.

I do not do complimentary repairs my older dolls bought on the secondary market.

I do not do upgrades and add new features to older edition dolls.

I will not fix damage done to a doll by a previous owner


Do you custom paint dolls?

I do not do any custom painting any more of my doll kits or doll kits poured by other artists.

I can not afford your dolls, will you reduce the price?

No, I do not reduce the price of my dolls.

Will you do a lay away on your dolls?

I prefer not to do lay away on dolls. I give each doll time to be adopted, paid in full before I consider doing a lay away.

Can I purchase a doll with a payment plan? Can I have the doll while making weekly or monthly payments?

I am just an artist working alone at home, I'm not a big company and I don't have the resources to do credit checks. My policy is no doll shipped until it is paid in full. I can not change that policy because people sometimes for various reasons are not able to follow through with their financial obligations. Although you may have impeccable intentions and will follow through, but I have no way of knowing that.  I have no way of discernment in financial matters, but experience has taught me that when I put a doll up for sale, its best to give the doll time to be paid in full before I agree to do a lay away.

In a situation where you would like to have the doll while you are paying it off, i recommend you use PayPal. PayPal is a reputable financial institution that has the resources to do credit checks  and decide who they can extend credit to. I also encourage collectors to use PayPal, because they offer BILL ME LATER in situations where I cant. When PayPal approves you for bill me later PayPal provides the funds for you to pay for the doll then I will ship the doll to you so you can enjoy your doll while you are making the payments to PayPal.


Can you make me a doll that drinks and wets and cries and poops?

because of collectors requesting it I do offer drink and wet dolls, but I do not offer these crying and pooping dolls.

Do you do trades?

No, I don't do trades.

How long have you been making dolls?

I started making dolls in 1982. I started making my own molds in 1985. I started making silicone dolls in 2007. I started making my own silicone molds in 2008.

Do you offer mold making services?

I used to offer mold making services for many years but recently because my schedule is full I can not offer mold making services to new clients.

What type of silicone do you use for your dolls and kits?

My goal is to make the highest quality silicone dolls available to collectors. This high quality over the years of creating quality  silicone dolls has been consistent, and speaks for itself since I started making silicone dolls in 2007.   My silicone dolls are made of 100% platinum cure SmoothOn silicone because I trust their products, and I feel they provide the best quality silicone. I'm happy to say all the silicone, and accessories such as the paints, pigments, solvents, and the matting agents I use while making my dolls are all Smooth on materials. 

All the silicone dolls are made completely by me, I sculpt them from a lump of clay, I mold them, I paint them, I root them. I use the best quality German glass eyes, and the best angora mohair available to me from various suppliers. I am inspired by the work of the creator and the beauty I see in his creation. I specifically focus on making babies because of the hope, joy and wonder new life brings. I do my best to make my silicone babies as realistic as possible by paying attention to the tiniest details. And I think you will be happy when you bring home a Claire Taylor Doll.

Do you have any silicone kits?

All my silicone kits have SOLD OUT. I have plans for more new silicone kits in the future.


Do you have any vinyl kits?

I do not have any new vinyl kits available as right now , but click on the store tab above to go to my Online store to get older kits at a reduced price. I am thinking about doing a new vinyl kit.

Are you going to do another edition with a list?

No I don't want to do a doll list right now, I will use eBay or list dolls here on my web site I don't want to do lists right now because I have young kids so life interrupts me more often than not, so it is best for me not to feel obligated to make an edition with a list. Many collectors are very nice and understanding but also many are not very good at waiting, and the full body doll takes longer to make. The doll world expectations are changing constantly, and I have come to the conclusion it is better for collectors to see the doll they are getting before they commit to buy. It also frees my creative ability, I do my best work when I'm free to create. I think I start the dolls I put on eBay at a fair price for eBay considering all the fees and risks associated with eBay and I am satisfied just to get the starting bid.

Do you do any tutorials or teach doll making?

No I do not teach, I am a doll maker only. I do not teach and I do not offer tutorials. 


How much does one of your dolls cost?

Each doll has a different price because each doll is made differently. By visiting each individual doll's web page you will see the price listed there. You can look at the Silicone Dolls web Page or the Store or go to the Dolls page to see the price of a particular doll.

Do you offer lay away?

Yes, I offer a short lay away for SOME of my silicone dolls. But before I do I give the dolls time to be adopted paid in full. I put all the deposit information on the individual Doll's page when the doll becomes available, payments are by wire transfer only.

All deposits and lay away payments are non- refundable and are not transferable to another doll. If you decide not to continue with your lay away, I will not refund the any lay away payments you have made towards your doll.

Do you ship Internationally?

Yes I do ship internationally, but you will be responsible for all Customs charges and taxes charged by your country.

I am not familiar with the customs laws of each respective country, so if there is a particular way you need your doll declared or any restricted items that I can not ship to you because of your import restrictions, to avoid problems please make me aware before I ship your baby.

How long does it take to get a response to an email?

I work Monday through Friday with the dolls, and the weekend I spend with my family. I do not answer e-mails on the weekends in order to devote more time with my family.  I will resume answering e-mails Monday.

I feel it necessary that I answer all my emails personally because it is the only way to maintain contact with the collectors and really know their needs. So Please if you have questions and can not find the answers here contact me directly at and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I gets lots of emails daily and sometimes it takes a few days for me to get back to you but I will as soon as I can.

I will update this page occasionally as needed.
