FIMO Leather Effect Clay is a polymer clay that looks and feels remarkably like leather after hardening. Our collection includes a range of different colours, including saffron yellow, rust, dove grey, olive and many more. FIMO Leather Effect is perfect for making clay jewellery – such as earrings, necklaces or bracelets – but can also be used to create other home decorations and bag charms.
Like other FIMO modelling clay, it should be oven baked for hardening. This clay in particular requires 30 minutes in a conventional oven at 130°C. Once hardened, the leather-effect look will be visible on both sides and the piece will be highly flexible like leather, enabling you to bend it with ease, cut it with scissors or punch and sew it.

Want to make clay jewellery? Have you tried the FIMO Leather Effect range? This FIMO modelling clay is ideal for making unique FIMO jewellery such as earrings, necklaces or bracelets. It also makes wonderful leather-effect decorations for your home.
Like all FIMO Polymer Clay, FIMO Leather Effect clay is self-adhesive, so if you place two pieces on top of one another, they will stick together. Pressing and smoothing the clay will strengthen the bonding. You can blend different colours together as well as create unique patterns and marbling effects. Try our FIMO Leather Effect Colour Pack of 12 to practise working different colours together.
You can shape or work FIMO Leather Effect clay in any way you like, even varying the leather effect too: the more firmly you compress the modelling clay, the smoother the leather effect. Pull the clay apart gently after rolling it out and the leather effect will take on a raw look.

Add your FIMO beads and a clasp and you’ll have yourself a fully FIMO jewellery piece.
