How to do it

  1. Print then cut out the shaped templates onto paper. Roll out the FIMOair clay using the acrylic roller to about 1cm in thickness. Place the cut out templates onto the rolled out clay and cut out carefully using a modelling tool or scalpel. If using the texture moulds, gently but firmly press the texture sheet onto the cut out shape. Cut away any excess clay if necessary. If making tree decorations ensure both sides are textured. (You can also use the small shaped cutters to add hearts, stars etc layered on top of the basic shaped template). Pierce a hole in the top of the clay shape to be used later for threading cord or ribbon.
  2. Harden in the microwave for 10 minutes at 600 watts. Place a glass of cold water in the microwave during the hardening process.
  3. Once hardened and cooled down, add a base coat of acrylic paint to some of the ornaments leaving some white.
