Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review with tips for first time users Fimo is great. Don't become intimidated by it. I use it regularly as a basis for model making. It comes in a variety of colours, including some obscure ones like 'glow on the dark' if that is what you are looking for! It comes out of the packet reasonably firm, but you knead it, like dough, to soften it up. The more you knead it, the softer it will get. If you leave it for a while, it will gradually toughen up again too. There's fimo soft available as well (it says on the packet). It's all down to preference really, and it's good to experiment with it for a bit in order to fully grasp technique. Now, you can mess around with this stuff as long as you like really, you can bake it in any oven at 110 degrees for no longer than 30 minutes (depending on how thick it is) but be sure your fimo isn't too thick as it may lead to cracking and things, but it is fixable. Easily. So even if you make this mistake, you can touch it up with more fimo, and put it back in. I've been able to bake things a few centimetres thick, and it's turned out totally fine. Now, when it comes out of the oven, it will still be a little soft, so be careful with it until its completely cool, set it aside for a bit. You can also re-bake your models if you are adding to them, which I'll go into... I recommend baking in stages. It depends what you are making, but if you're making something quite complex, and to save waste on fimo, start with a filler that can be put in the oven. Say I am making a ball (size of a tennis ball). There's no point on that being made entirely of fimo. It's a waste. I'll roll a ball of kitchen foil up first, then coat it in fimo... to get it smooth before baking, I'll use sculpting tools or my fingers even, to try and blend it all together and get rid of lines and bumps I don't want to show. EXTRA TIP Get an old soft brush and rubbing alcohol, this is almost like a liquid sandpaper. You can brush over your fimo with this to smooth out fingerprints and things. Be carefully not to use too much or it starts getting gunky (unless that's the desired effect. It'll still bake) Now, say I've baked my tennis ball, and I want to add more to it. Smaller details, stitching, etc, I can, and I can put it back in the oven too. It can be better this way to save you smooshing up your base trying to applying other things. Just keep an eye on your temperature, and don't burn it. I've burnt a few things, but I'm always able to go back and fix it. Fimo can also be painted with acrylics, varnished (they have their own make of varnish) and whatever you make can be sanded and polished too, but with really fine sandpaper. There are plenty of tips online on what to use. Fimo also have a range of the recommended sandpaper which you can purchase if it interests you. Go watch some tutorials on YouTube, have a play around. It's great stuff and allows for mistakes. It's only done when you bake it, and use baking as checkpoints in your model. I'd recommend this and anybody... (maybe not the rubbing alcohol to anybody, some supervision may be required depending on age when it comes to that, but it's not essential! Just a tip for smoothing. Vasceline can be quite good to use too. You can always mix one part water and one part rubbing alcohol too if you wish to dilute the formula for applying.) Now it when it cools, it should feel like a hard clay, maybe even have a plastic feel to it. Its great for making anything. Keyring, fridge magnets, characters, busts, tabletop miniatures, you name it. Enjoy! And please, have fun :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and gives great results. Although it is initially a stiffer clay than fimo soft, I think it is stronger once baked. I purchased the black fimo professional clay as I decided to have a go at making some earrings. I found the product easy to use, it is lovely matt black but can also be buffed after baking to a give a lovely sheen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best black clay Amazing clay. Super easy to work with. Only downside is it stains your hands but it’s easily removed with dish soap and water. Love using this clay overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I love FIMO so much it is a perfect texture, not too soft and squidgy, not to hard that you can’t mould it. I use mine to make earrings and they mix really well together.
