Fimo enameled bowls

I've been testing a variety of techniques for faux enameling and glazing, and I created various molds for bowls to do so. This is my favorite design, and my favorite technique so far. I used eye shadow for the base of the enameling and then added, after cooking the clay bowls, a coating of Craf-T metallic rub-on paste to the top after cooking. Then I outlined the edges with Krylon's 18 K. gold pen. The base for all was Fimo gold.


  1. Beautiful effect! I love the depth of colour.


  2. Thank you. The dept requires a variety of coats. I started with eye shadow for a base coat and then after cooking added several layers of the Craf-T paste. Then I finished with several coats of Future. I've always loved copper and silver enameling so that's what I was going for.

  3. Isn't it amazing how much experimentation these things take? Glad yours worked out so well!

  4. Tyla it's amazing the amount of work one must do to experiment, but that's always the fun part for me. -doc
