Fimo Bowls


I've been testing some of the newer Fimo special effects clays and this mustard-colored clay had flecks in it that I thought might work for old ceramic "yellowware" mixing bowls. I've learned I prefer Fimo to Premo for bowls and plates because it is more flexible and less brittle for me. I need to add an elastic clay for Premo to prevent the breaking of such thin pieces.

  1. Your mixing bowls made of STAEDTLER FIMO are very nice!

    We'd love to meet you on our facebook fanpage http://www.facebook.com/STAEDTLER.headquarters - it would be great if you became a fan, too, and showed your artworks on our page.

    Hope to meet you soon and best regards from STAEDTLER headquarters in Germany, Yvonne

  2. You bowls are very nice. I've had no luck making bowls, they keep breaking. I'm going to try adding some elastic clay, thanks for the tip.
