FIMO is a Polymer Modelling Clay brand made by the German Company Staedtler. This PVC based compound is stronger than normal modelling clays allowing you to create smaller, more detailed pieces. It consists of plastic powder, plasticisers and additives that become a gel during oven baking and a solid state when cool. FIMO is suitable for all ages and can be used in a similar way to ceramics, modelling clay, plasticine and play-dough. FIMO Polymer Clay is so versatile and is used by children, artists and students alike in jewellery making, animation, sculpture and home crafts. As well as being able to drill and sand FIMO you can paint it with Acrylic Paint once baked and create marbled effects by mixing colours together.
