New experiments- painted fimo pendants!

Hi everyone, we finally got our computer back this afternoon yippeeeee! So no longer having to use the painfully slow lap top! I'm hoping to go visiting all my blog friends again, after my eldests Christmas concert which we have tonight! (very excited about that!)

This afternoon I decided to experiment with some fimo that I have had for a while, now that our oven is finally fixed I was able to bake this afternoon, so I made some pendant shapes and painted them with acrylic paint. I thought it would be nice to make original wearable one of a kind pendants. These are the first few that I tried, and I only have black and white fimo but I think they turned out pretty cool. I've got lots of ideas about what I want to try next.

Very sweet and unique. Did you glaze them with something, after you painted them, or does the acrylic stay on well?
Regards from Sheila :o)


We have just discovered your gorgeous pendant made of STAEDTLER FIMO!
We'd love to meet you on our facebook fanpage - it would be great if you became a fan, too, and showed your artworks to all other FIMO fans on our page to inspire them.

BTW: We will raffle cute products for our fans' FIMO Christmas crafts :) Just post a pic of your lovely artwork - and I'm sure you may look forward to receiving a nice New Year's gift.

Hope to meet you soon and best regards from STAEDTLER headquarters in Germany, Yvonne

Hi Nicola, thanks for your comment to my "witch"! :o)

I hope that your new medium is better. I also make Fimo jewelry occasionally and had that same problem with the piece getting sticky, after glazing it. Some products can even dissolve the clay, in worst case.. So I think it's good that you have found something especially for Fimo.
Have a nice day :o)

Thanks so much for joining my blog :) I can't wait to read more of yours and learn about you.
