How to make

Step 1

Depending on the size of your plant pot holders, knead one to two blocks of FIMO Soft (Pale Pink) per pot until soft and roll out to a 5mm sheet using an acrylic roller.

Step 2

Roll out half a block each of the FIMO Soft Emerald and FIMO Effect Mint until soft and then into a sheet approximately 2-3mm thick.

Step 3

Cut part of each green sheet into small shards.

Step 4

Next, place the green FIMO shards onto the base sheet to create a terrazzo effect.

Top Tip: Less is more, and the fragments should not be too neatly arranged.

Step 5

Then roll over with the acrylic roller so as to bind the shards with the base sheet and create an even surface.

Step 6

Now cut the rough shape of the plant potholder from the FIMO sheet.

Top Tip: Roll the plant potholder gently over the modelling clay, creating a faint impression on the clay which you can then cut round roughly.

Step 7

Place the trimmed strip around the pot, press down and then cut to the required length. Close the join and smooth it flat.

Top Tip: To avoid leaving fingerprints on the FIMO, place some baking paper over the join and smooth over it with your finger.

Remove any modelling clay that is protruding over the top of the pot. Smooth over the edges with your finger.

Step 8

Next, place the plant potholder on the remaining piece of FIMO and cut to fit the bottom.

Join the seam between the bottom and the sides of the plant potholder by smoothing it down with your finger.

Step 9

Place the plant pot in the oven to harden at 110℃/230℉ for 30 minutes, then leave until completely cool before adding your plant.
