Fimo Revisited






I've never had much success in the past with Fimo (polymer clay) but after seeing the fab work by Donna Kato I thought I'd give it a second chance.

I used ordinary Fimo, a large stamp from Hero Arts, face stamp by Lost Coast and some cutters usually used in sugar craft. A toaster oven to bake it costs less than a heat gun!

I don't know how much wear and tear it will take but it's quite pretty!

Gorgeous piece of super art. It looks really brilliant and I think its quite resistant to knocks too !!

WOW - these look fabulous ... I am nearly tempted to revisit my Fimo and trust me when I say I have a big drawer full of the stuff ... yes I know ... it was another whim!!!

Wow this is gorgeous - you ought to add it to the Hero Arts flickr gallery.

I was gifted a lot of fimo and gave most of it to school - did keep some back though so might give this a go. Any pics of the cutters you used available so I know what to look for?

Thanks :)
