Come discover the colorful world of fimo clay! This workshop experiments with the many different techniques this sculpey clay has to offer. We work with the clay while it’s soft, combining different colors while twisting, bending and cutting to make beautiful marbled surfaces. Then we learn how to form the clay into beads for jewelry, make small trinkets and charms, and even sculpt small figures. After we shape our clay, we bake our pieces in a small oven to harden them for everyday use. Students can experiment with cutting, painting, and sanding the hardened pieces for unique after-effects. The artistic possibilities are endless with this fun and bright clay medium!
