This week I've been having fun playing with my stash of Fimo. I've been working on a project for Beads and Beyond, but you,ll have to wait until December to see that one. This weekend I will be demonstrating Fimo at the Craft and Hobby Show at Cardiff City Stadium with Boxes and Busts ( who sell jewellery supplies and run fantastic jewellery workshops in South Wales).
I've been asked to demonstrate the new Fimo Pen. It's a plain metal pen - with a great quality Staedtler pen insert - and it can be decorated with Fimo before the metal cover gets baked. I used four new Fimo Effect colours - ruby quartz, agate blue, citrine quartz and blue ice quartz. These gemstone colours have a lovely subtle sparkle to them. I hope you can see that in the photos.
I made a flower millefiori cane and it doesn't take much Fimo to cover a pan and so I had lots left to play with. I made these beads with the leftover cane. The beads have been threaded onto memory wire to make a bracelet. I don't usually varnish beads, but the varnish on these beads have brought out the sparkle beautifully.
