Make an Octopus figurine using FIMO oven-bake clay
July 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
Emily will take you step by step to create an Octopus figurine.
You will learn how to set up your workspace, blend colors and create cool effects like color gradients and surface textures. At the end of the tutorial, you will have a completed piece ready to bake in a regular oven. Once FIMO is hardened, it becomes very durable. Hardened FIMO can also be painted, drilled, sanded and even re-baked. It can be used to create jewelry, figurines, decorations and more. Left-over FIMO can be stored for later use so there is no waste.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to get started with FIMO clay
- How to mix and blend colours
- How to add texture using everyday household items
- How to make variations to your design
