Art doll. Laurence Ruet sculpts OOAK (One of a Kind) dolls in Cernit polymer clay which lends itself, in the right hands, to the most life-like effects due to it's higher translucency. Many people don't understand that Cernit may be crumbly before it's well conditioned and think it's gone bad or something. It just takes more effort to work the clay. A lot more effort, from my experience. The artist's site is http://laurenceruet.com/indexenglish.html.
