Discover the colorful world of fimo clay, and experiment with the many different techniques this engaging medium has to offer! We work with the clay while it’s soft, combining different colors with twisting, bending and cutting techniques to make beautiful marbled surfaces. Then students learn how to form the clay into beads, ideal for trinkets and charms. We even take time to craft small figures and bowls. After we shape our clay, we bake our pieces in a small oven, hardening them for everyday use. Students experiment with cutting, painting and sanding the hardened pieces for unique after-effects. The artistic possibilities are endless with this bright and fun clay form!
