Fimo family portrait

6 May

This little project has meant quite a bit to me. As a child I loved fimo but I haven’t had any for probably about 20 years. My love of creating led me on to an evening course in ceramics. But since having children I haven’t had the time (or energy) to do that. I’ve recently seen some great creations on pinterest using polymer clay and I realised that it didn’t have to be just for children, so I thought I’d give it a try again.

Unfortunately I’m dreadful with numbers and following instructions and after spending ages on my fimo creations I then went and baked them at over double the required temperature! The smell was dreadful and I almost cried when I saw them.

After a few days I stopped kicking myself and decided that I should use my mistake as an opportunity to improve. So I set about making my fimo family #2.

And here it is, my little family in fimo form.

Ok, in reality my hair isn’t that blonde!

And our cat Flossie rarely sits that close to the kids.

I hope you like it as much as we do.

      Thanks Mel. I was thinking about setting myself up in business and making them for people. It did take me quite a while though!

    I love what you made! It turned out really well. Hopefully you can find some humour in having baked your first family to a crisp! It is a great story:)
