Fimo Owl

I remember making things with Fimo when I was little and really enjoying it, so when I was given a starter pack I started building up a board on Pinterest for inspiration - Fimo craft inspiration board. I wanted to start small, and I wanted something easy to make, so I chose to make a little fimo owl keyring. You can find the original in an album on Flickr by user lecielrouge.

He measures about 5cm across. I decided not to turn him into a keyring in the end, but he seems sturdy enough that he'd be a durable keyring. I'm really pleased with him! It was a bit fiddly, but I really enjoyed doing it and it was very satisfying.

I've got plenty of Fimo left so I'm going to be keeping an eye out for some more ideas. I really like the idea of making a Fimo Nativity Scene, but I think that I might need quite a lot more Fimo for that! The children also love creating little bits and pieces, they've made their favourite Pokemon and we also made some Fimo accessories for their Sylvanian Families.

    1. It is like playdough but with a firmer texture and brighter colours. You harden it in the oven and it sets solid. It's very versatile!
