This Instructable was created to show the possibilities of Fimo clay.

Fimo is a polymer clay. The material comes in many different colors. Once shaped, Fimo is baked in a standard oven for about 30 minutes at 110 °C. Once baked, it can be cut, drilled, painted, sanded, and sliced thinly.

There Are 5 Types of Fimo clay: Fimo classic, Fimo Soft, Fimo Effects, Fimo kids, Fimo professional.

Step 1: Preheating the Oven

Preheat the oven to 110 °C. (See figure)

Step 2: Making the Fimo Soft

Make the clay soft and sculpting-ready.

The best way is to knead the clay firmly.

Step 3: Modelling

Model the clay into the desired shapes.

TIP Use everyday objects (rolling pin, knives, ...) in order to edit the Fimo-clay.

If you wish to confirm clay on for example steel wire, it is possibe to model it before placing it in the oven.

Step 4: Baking

Place the baking dish with Fimo creations in the preheated oven.

110 °C - 30 min

Step 5: Cooling Down

After 30 minutes the Fimo creations are ready to cool down.

Step 6: Finishing

Further finish is possible if you wish.

There are different kinds of Fimo accessories that can be used here.

For a smoother surface the baked-clay can be wetted and sanded.

If you want a glossy coating on the clay, you can do this with varnish.

TIP The baked Fimo-clay can be confirmed afterwards on other surfaces, with superglue.
