Fimo is a type of polymer clay, also known as Sculpey or Premo. Fimo is a very versatile and malleable medium to work with. It is a fun project for kids and adults alike. Fimo can be purchased at most craft stores and is available in all different colors and hues. Proper baking is important with Fimo. Overcooking or too high temperatures can lead to burnt or cracked clay; undercooking or temperatures that are too low will not properly harden your Fimo. Due to it's chemical content, it is suggested that you bake your Fimo in a dedicated oven, such as a toaster oven.
Things You'll Need
- Aluminum foil
- Cookie sheet
Preheat your oven to 230 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line your cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Arrange your Fimo on top of the aluminum foil.
