More Fun With Fimo

I made some more Fimo items tonight. I'd say buttons, but most of them don't have any holes!

Green Leaf Shapes: I used a cookie cutter then added my own indentations for the veins. I can picture myself using these leaves alongside a Hero Arts stamped flower in a card soon!

Small Square Shapes: Stamped squares with Hero Arts LL022 Pop Petals (no ink) for texture. I also brushed them with some Perfect Pearls before baking.

Red Round Shapes: I stamped the Pop Petals with Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black before baking.

One thing I am surprised about is how much my hands hurt after two nights of playing with Fimo! I'm using Fimo Soft, but rolling it out still takes a good amount of effort! The lower knuckles on the palms of my hand are feeling painful! And yesterday I forgot to mention the first thing I did, which was to slice my finger open. Yikes!

Oh well, it has been a lot of fun, but I think tomorrow night after work I will go back to traditonal cardmaking! Maybe I can use some of my new Fimo creations!

Oh yeah, I do want to find some of the "push molds" and give them a try this weekend. I'll let you know how it turns out!

Wow Joy these are great. Sound like the Fimo is hard work! Looking forward to seeing these in your cards.

Joy I have heard of people using pasta machines to roll out their fimo. But not being a person who uses fimo I am not 100% sure I have that right. Maybe Jane could help you?
