Working with FIMO

In the picture is a heart shaped brooch I made from FIMO.
FIMO is available in most craft shops and really easy to work with.

FIMO comes in a range of colours. This particular one had a sparkly seashell like luminescent quality to it.
How could I not buy it?

To make the brooch – Roll out the FIMO on a flat surface. I used cookie or biscuit cutters to get the shapes. And bake in a warm oven as per the instructions. Using strong glue attach pins to the back of the brooch and allow to dry.

Will talk more on brooches in the next post.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
