Glass Doll Weighting Beads, Fine  (20/30 mesh size - approx. table salt grain size)  5 Lb Bag

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 tiny rounded glass beads.  This size is what I put inside the limbs and inside a plastic bag in the head.  I also sell the larger beads that work well inside the body slip because they are larger and give a softer bean-bag like effect. 

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. This can be very helpful when you are trying to weight tiny little arms and legs. 

(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)

Hint:  if you're shipping to Australia, it is recommended that you include a small sample of these beads inside the package with your reborn with a note explaining that the doll is filled with these tiny glass beads that are a little larger than sand.  Apparently they do look like sand on an X-Ray but I've been told that this explanation seems to be sufficient for the customs officials in Australia.

    I love these beads. Aside from being nice to look at they are easy to use and work great for weighting my reborns!

    The one and only for me

    These are the only beads I would ever consider placing into my reborn dolls . Edges are smooth and round despite the fine grade which makes them ideal for the hands and feet ( lower limbs ) . Outstanding quality !
