Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by tttrish from excellent for little hands excellent modelling medium for little hands, doesn't dry out Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisaloo38 from Easy to use and quick to bake Easy to mould and was quick to bake. Lots of bright colours to choose from. Rated 5 out of 5 by Slippililfish from Great for little sculptures I'm back using Fimo for the little dragons and find this easy to warm, keep warm and sculpt with.
Yes it only comes in tiny packs so you have to scale yourself but it's colours are so strong that you can mix and even dilute them white and this one make perfect violet Thoroughly recommended for ease of use to beginners and old hands like me Date published: It is an excellent product, perfect for bead making, sculpting and generally having fun with.
Woth noting when buying Fimo that it needs to be fresh and you should always get it from somewhere with a high turn-over of stock. Hobbycraft never sells anything but the best! Highly recommended! Rated 5 out of 5 by Nanna54 from Perfect clay for children and adults alike Good colour. Grandchildren found it nice and easy to mould.
Great product all round. One thing that might come into play, however, is that spray varnishes and paints seem to become soft and never fully dry on polymer clay, even on cured clay. So I wonder if the spray paint flakes would get gummy after being on polymer clay. Have you tried doing it on clay? Pingback: Getting started — Bellingham PolyClay. Hi I recently purchased a starter kit the clay was very hard, they then gave me a softener to mix but still to hard to warm in my hands it does not soften a lot ,I suffer from arthritis, is there another way by softening the clay.

You can soften hard clay by warming it on a heating pad or in your pocket bras work, too. You can then mix a clay softener into the clay. Thank you so much for taking the time to help a beginner like myself! I love your writing style, concise and helpful, 2 thumbs up!
Your starter kit post has given me a clear indication of where to begin. Thanks for sharing your recommendations and for the thoughts of your commenters. Very useful. Just came across this.
I use fimo clay both soft and classic and mix them together. I always use white as I hand paint the finished product. Can u paint with the alcohol inks? Thanks Debi. Yes, you can. I made a slightly more simplified variation of this for my nephew when he showed an interest in polymer clay. I got one of the Sculpey sampler kits, the Sculpey Firefly toolset the purple plastic tools , two sets of the cutters square and circle , and from the dollar store a set of three foil rectangular tins and a flexible cutting mat decent work surface.
Everything but the mat fit inside the tins, and there being three meant that he could keep everything in one while the other two were on baking duty. Sounds like a good all-around solution. But they do remember that they were loved. The starter list is what I still use primarily with all my work.

Also, a small piece of glass or acrylic I just ripped this out from my least favorite picture frame is great for lentil beads and rolling out even cylinders of clay. Final thought about basic cutters: the round cutter Makins set is super useful, especially for measuring out clay and such. Lots of tutorials also use this as a good way to measure out clay. I have my circle cutter set at the corner of my work surface all the time.
This article and the other beginner articles are super informative! This site is becoming one of my go-to places to find anything related to polymer clay! Thank you Ginger! Very good ideas. I should have added the acrylic block.
I do use mine all the time, actually. Thank you for the kind words. You really got me to thinking about grouping the beginner articles together. The site is getting so big! Amigurumi bunny crochet pattern from Leelee Knits. How to make a bunny softie from a simple knitted square by Studio Knit SF.
