play-doh as fimo??
There's some REALLY cute things on here.But some of the ones i want to do require fimo.But i have NO idea where to get some.So i was wondering if you could substitute play-doh for fimo?i was planning to do the lollipop necklace made of fimo,but i didn't have any. D: could you at least put play-doh in the oven just enough time to bake?
i have no idea if you could do that but id venture to say its not a good idea to put play doh in the oven. it would probably get all cracked and crumbly. you can go to craft stores like AC Moore or michaels or you could buy the clay online. though id recommend looking in craft stores first.
You could make salt dough..all you need is plain flour, salt and water. It's ok as long a you're not making anything too small and detailed. bake in oven, paint and seal with varnish.
Just google salt dough and you'll get the recipe
I think you shouldn't use play-doh.
My experience is that it dries out when you forget to put it back in it's container. And if it's dry it cracks and crumbles.
If you live in the USA Michale's, Hobby Lobby, and most other craft stores sell fimo clay. I use sculpey alot it's a good brand that isn't too expensive, maybe $3 for one color. Ask an associate where to find it.
Play-doh wouldn't work nearly as well.
