These cute, life-like babies are sculptures created out of clay by Camille Allen. The babies are not made of Marzipan - they were never made of marzipan or sugar or almond paste, and they are not real premature babies.
I use various kinds of professional doll sculptors' clay to make the babies - polymer clays - such as Cernit or Prosculpt. The babies have soft English mohair to imitate fine baby hair and are blushed with paints for realism to enhance their tiny wrinkles and creases.
Starting from detailed photographs and a lump of clay, sculpting a lifesize or miniature baby begins. It takes many, many hours of patient concentration to form a realistic baby and finish with fine details - including wrinkles and fingernails.
