Cernit is one of the strongest clays. (It was once considered the very strongest, but Kato Polyclay may now have out-performed it.) Though easily conditioned, it is also very flexible when cured.
There are many colors available-27 standard colors, 18 pearlescent colors, 6 neon colors, 6 "nature colors", and 7 colors specially formulated for dolls.
Cernit is a popular clay among doll-makers because of its translucent quality and the porcelain-like finish it has after curing.
