Glass Doll Weighting Beads, Large (1.7 - 2mm size) 5 LBS
A naturally weighted doll adds much to the feel of realism. You want a natural balance of weight between the body and the limbs. The best way to achieve this is to use glass beads. This size is what I put inside a knee high stocking and then place inside the cloth body slip. These beads are large enough that they don't "sift out" of the nylon mesh.
More and more people are using this bead to make therapeutic weighted blankets. This is a perfect glass bead for that purpose.
I also sell the tiny Fine size beads that work better inside the vinyl parts because they are small like salt grains, and give you far more weight in the limbs than plastic pellets. Both of the glass weighting beads I sell are completely clean, sanitary, with rounded shapes (no crushed glass, no sharp edges, no dangerous silica powder to inhale!). Your dolls and your customers deserve the absolute best and this is it! Glass beads weigh more than twice as much as plastic beads so you don't need as much.
(I will use the most economical shipping method - usually Priority Mail Flat Rate - and refund the difference to you if it's more than a couple dollars)
NOTE! As of 4/8/2020: Due to increased incidents of POOR & ROUGH handling by the USPS, we are now paying for Shipping Insurance. I will NOT be held liable for broken bags or boxes. If you have a problem with your shipment of glass beads, you should be able to contact USPS and file a claim for damages. If you need my help to do it I will help you.

great size and i am looking forward to putting dominic sculpt together with them thanks
These glass beads are made of the up most quality . They are ultra smooth and are visible in shape an clarity with bare eyesight . I have not seen this quality elsewhere and would not use anything else for my Reborn dolls !
I use these in my bodies as they have a great feel to them and they do not leak out of the nylons or other fabrics I use. They do not have dust. They are a perfect weight for the volume.
