I always loved lampwork beads, and I even made some simple beads. It's a fascinating work, but a bit expensive technique.

So I decided to make my faux effect for the glass beads with Liquid Fimo and polymer clay. It's a very simple technique that only requires a bit of patience and is very fun to make!

Step 1:

Watching the video to better understand all the process! ;)

<p>Very cool. I have never seen liquid Fimo. I will have to look and see if they have it at our local craft store. It's been a long time since I tried working with Fimo. (I gave it up because I just couldn't afford it.) </p>
<p>Hi <a href="https://www.instructables.com/member/ThisIsMyNameOK/" rel="nofollow">ThisIsMyNameOK</a>! :D</p><p>Liquid Fimo is liquid polymer clay. There are other brands. </p><p>I only tryed this technique with liquid fimo so I can't tell you if it works with other brands. But there's only one way to know... trying! :D</p><p>Thank you for your nice comment! :D</p>
<p>If I ever try it, I'll let you know. I have to get to the craft store first. Well, I have to have money to spend first, then I have to get to the craft store, which may take awhile. But I didn't just give up working with polymer clay because of the cost. It was more because I was really bad at it. </p>
<p>Ok! That would make me very happy! :D</p><p>Sometimes we just need to practice a bit :)</p>
<p>Very cool!</p>

<p>This is great! Do you think you could also use this technique to make a bangle or a ring? </p>

<p>I had no idea liquid Fimo was a thing! Is it pretty firm, or will your bottom layers flatten out more and more as you stack?</p>
<p>Hi <a href="https://www.instructables.com/member/ashleyjlong/" rel="nofollow">ashleyjlong</a>! :D</p><p>Fimo liquid is very versatile and we can make lots of things with it.</p><p>The bottom layers should not flatten, unless there's an accident! That's why is important to keep the heat gun distant in until it hardens or it will spread the liquid</p><p>The bottom layers should not flatten, unless there's an accident! That's the reason why it's important to keep the heat gun distant, at least until it hardens or it will spread the liquid.</p>
