Marzipan Babies

Tanis sent this to me so that I could post the pics for her. Check these out. They are really amazing! These are handmade out of marzipan.

Polymer Clay Babies

Unfortunately, these are not real marzipan sculptures. (Or fortunately, perhaps since it might be a tad morbid eating them.) These are actually made of polymer clay. They are very well done though.

Further details may be found over at Snopes.com here:

I do agree it is a lovely work of art though...

They really are beautiful works of art. Obviously no one would eat them, it's meant to be just artwork. Someone has a real talent there! As Art mentioned, they are made of polymer clay and also mohair.
