Dear Garie,

 thank you for your request about our modelling clay Fimo.

We had a recipe conversion last year with Fimo to increase the stability in storage and in order to reach a saving of energy for our customers. Therefore the hardening temperature for the "new" Fimo is now 110° C / 230° F. It will be no problem if you want to combine (mix) "older" Fimo (130° C/265° F) with the new Fimo (110° C / 230° F). We advise to harden the combined Fimo at a temperature of 110° C (230° F) for 30 minutes and to use an oven thermometer for checking the temperature in your oven.

If you have any further question please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,

Garie, I received an identical email from them, after which I posed a few
more questions to them. When I receive an answer to those, I'll post them.

This is the answer I received from Eberhard Faber to the other
questions I asked:

Dear Mary,

you find the answers to your questions following:

1. You must harden the Fimo with this temperature, which is described
on the packing.


2. You can combine (mixing) the "new" and the "old" Fimo in each
percentage (not only 50:50). Then you can harden the combined Fimo at
110° C / 230° F. We recommend to use an oven thermometer to check the temperature
because Fimo soft is normally not brittle and easily cracking
(temperature to high?).


3. 350° F is a security advice. You should harden Fimo only with the
recommended temperature. At temperatures above 350° F gases can
result which can be harmful to health.


4. The formula for Fimo classic and "Doll Fimo" has been changed also.

It's good to know this includes Classic, as well, and that you don't
have to mix them 50/50.
