This is the how to from my original necklace
the timing is without the time it takes to harden the fimo in the oven- other then that, enjoy! I love mine and i wear it everyday
and this is my first how-to
so suggestions are great
here are all of the things yo will need to create the necklace:
-epoxy, a strong glue
-fimo( a few colors it could work with several different ones)
-a strong plastic( i used a yogurt container lid although it might be better with an old gift card)
- and paper to make an outline for the backing
how to make the flowers:
first make several little balls of fimo and them flatten them out so they look like long pancakes. After that roll one up and start rolling the other ones around it in a way you want and it will start to look like a flower, it might take a couple of tries before you get the one you like!
remember that you have to put the fimo in the oven to get it to be hard just read the directions on the package as well you will have to flatten the bottom
i suggest sand papering it to make it easier to glue
Next step is to arrange however many flowers you want on the necklace and where they are going to go, often it can be a little tricky just because you don't want any of the container showing..
now you want to transfer your stencil onto the plastic, as well remember you will want to cut three slits one on either side and one in the middle so you can thread the chain
next you will need to epoxy the plastic stencil ( or put strong glue) follow the directions on the package and then stick your flowers on.
(when you glue put something through the slits so the the glue does not glue them shut.
the picture is of how to thread the chain and the slits
once its dry put it on and you will have one new necklace
hope you enjoyed it and the instructions helped
