Fimo Basic Technique
And Baking Information
Cut off small pieces from the block, knead until soft and combine with larger pieces.
Kneading it well before using the clay is necessary for effective forming.
Mixing and Modelling
Roll the softly kneaded material into sausage shapes and plait them together,
mixing until a new colour tone has been achieved. We have shown a few colour
tones on the next page.
The work surface used can be a smooth PVC board or Ceramic tile. One can
also use kitchen knives, knitting needles, etc., as modelling aids.
As you can see in the picture, a fine marble effect can be achieved by kneading
the premixed material, which is cut into strips.
To make flat pieces such as leaves, cut off bits of FIMO that has been kneaded
until soft, and roll out with a rolling-pin or bottle.
Designing the Structure
Many different objects can be used to give the surface a different structure:
for instance,circles can be made with a ball-point pen, a rough surface can be
achieved with a toothbrush, or the structure of a leaf can be made with real leaves.
Pre-heat the oven to 130ºC maximum cover the baking tray with aluminium foil
or tile base. Use convection oven to harden objects such as wood, glass,
porcelain and metal, which has been decorated and covered by FIMO. The
hardening process takes about 10 - 20 minutes.
For Baking In A Toaster Oven
Baking in the convection oven, set temperature to 140 degree C will be a good
temperature for baking baking polymer clay, baking time 30 minutes.
For the new fFmo clay, although the recomended temperature you can baked the
clay at 130 or 140 degree C for 30 minutes.
