FIMO Polymer Clay
Dive into the fascinating world of polymer clay with our selection from FIMO, DAS and Sculpey. Polymer clay, a remarkable modeling medium, is crafted from synthetic materials, primarily composed of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) particles, blended with plasticisers, pigments, and various additives. The name "polymer clay" stems from its distinctive property - it undergoes a chemical transformation when exposed to heat in an oven, resulting in a remarkable metamorphosis into a durable, plastic-like material.
Polymer clay, including the ever popular FIMO, offers artists, hobbyists, and crafters a one-of-a-kind creative canvas. Its malleability allows you to shape, sculpt, and design with ease. Your model can then be baked in your domestic oven at a temperature of 110°C for 30 minutes.
There is an extensive palette of colours and effects in the FIMO range from solid hues to captivating specialty effects like metallics, translucents, glitters. Here is a quick explanation of the types FIMO colours and effects that are available here at Pullingers:

It can also be used in mixed-media projects and for adding unique textures to sculptures and decorative items.
