Dear someone who knows more about Fimo than I do:
can anyone help me out with this: i made a fimo pazcki (POONCH-key)and used some filed white fimo (already baked) for the "sugar" on top. then i baked it, and it came out perfectly, except that the white came right off! i then tried painting some clear nail polish on and doing the same thing; i thought it would adhere. i was wrong; it came right off.
what can i use/do to make the "powdered sugar" on top of my mini, inedible Chanukah delight????
PS: i need it done by Christmas eve!!!!
You can usually add polymer clay that has already been baked to another piece that is not, but if both pieces are already baked (cured), then baking it again won't make them stick. So if that is the case, you can try coating the edible part with mod podge, either matte or glossy finish then sprinkle the white while it's still wet. I have worked with polymer clay and still have a ton of it, but I haven't tried what you're doing, but I do know what works as far as combining to pieces. I have never used nail polish, tho I've heard of others using it. Good luck!
thanks; i did try it before it was baked. then i tried again with the nail polish, which didnt work. i also had this mod-podgey stuff (different brand and really shiny) on the little dollop of "jam" on the top, and the white didnt stick to that either.
im about ready to give up and just dry-stipple (stipple+dry-brush, lol!) some of the white acrylic onto it. im kind of worried about that, though.
