These are so cute! I'm going to make some for when my boyfriend and I have our own house. I've already gathered some things for our kitchen, it's going to be 50s diner-style, and I think these would fit right in Happy

Gorgeousss!! Cat, all your stuff is amazing.

What do you use to sculpt the fimo? Do you use a knife or your fingers?

I just thought that I might add that Fimo is a name brand of polymer clay. There are many name brands of polymer clay, including Sculpey, SuperSculpey, SculpeyIII, Kato, Cernit, Fimo, FimoSoft, and many more. The clays turn to a plastic-like material after curing (baking). The Fimos are the softest, before and after baking. Kato is the strongest after baking, but can be a little stiff to work with raw. The Sculpeys are kind of a middle ground. I have to experience with Cernit, as it is used primarily for doll-making. What I like to do is mix a little Kato into my Sculpey so that it is stronger after baking. Also, since the temps used in baking polymer clay are so low, you can attach it to glass, metal, wood, and tons of other materials before baking. You can even add things like dried basil to transparent (NOT see-through, think frosted glass) to simulate stone!


By the way, Cat, super-cute magnets! I love the drips. You should try a three part translucent clay, one part color clay mix - it'll look even more realistic.

I'll take a photo as soon as my camera charges, and my fridge is like a big mirror so thats probably why it's not magnetic.
