FIMO Leather Effect Clay from Cooksongold
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.
Make Clay Jewellery with FIMO Leather Effect
Need a leather necklace cord for your FIMO bead necklace? If you’ve already made FIMO beads from FIMO polymer clay, why stop there? Create a leather-effect necklace cord with FIMO Leather Effect clay. Simply shape the clay into your ideal-sized cord and bake it in a conventional oven for 30 minutes at 130°C. Once hardened, it will look and feel remarkably similar to leather and it can be bent, cut with scissors, punched or sewn, just like real leather. Add your FIMO beads and a clasp and you’ll have yourself a fully FIMO jewellery piece.
