FIMO LEATHER-EFFECT


What is FIMO leather-effect?
FIMO leather‑effect is an oven-hardening modelling clay that can be shaped and worked in the same way as FIMO soft. After hardening it looks and feels similar to leather, and you can feel the effect even when you're kneading it. Unlike other oven-hardening types of FIMO, FIMO leather‑effect is hardened for 30 minutes at 130° C / 266° F. After hardening, thinly-rolled sheets are highly flexible, and can be bent, cut with scissors, punched or sewn, for example. This modelling clay is ideal for making unique jewellery pieces such as earrings, necklaces or bracelets. It also makes wonderful leather effect decorations for your home.

Benefits before hardening:
• You can shape or work FIMO leather-effect in any way you like, e.g. by embossing patterns or lettering.
• You can achieve the thickness you want for your FIMO sheet by rolling it out as appropriate.
• Leather effects vary: the more firmly you compress the modelling clay (e.g. by rolling it out), the smoother the leather effect you will create. If you pull the clay apart gently by hand after rolling it out, the leather effect will have more of a “raw” look.
• FIMO leather-effect (and FIMO in general) is what is known as self adhesive, i.e. when two pieces of FIMO are placed on top of each other, they will stick together. Pressing and smoothing the clay will strengthen the bonding. So you can lay two colours on top of each other, for instance, creating different colours on the front and back. FIMO will also stick to glasses and tins, making them easy to cover. (Individual FIMO decorations (e.g. little hearts, etc.) applied to items after hardening will not stick permanently)

Benefits after hardening:
• The FIMO leather-effect look is visible on both sides after hardening. This is particularly useful if you are creating earrings, handbag charms, etc.
• FIMO leather-effect is especially flexible and bendable after hardening. When FIMO leather-effect is rolled out thin, it can be punched, sewn (by hand or with a sewing machine) and cut into shapes with scissors.
What should I be aware of when working with unhardened FIMO leather-effect?
FIMO leather-effect can be worked in a similar way to FIMO soft, but it shrinks slightly once hardened. So if you need one of your creations to be a specific size, you should initially work with a slightly larger size. You can then cut it to your desired size (e.g. with scissors) after hardening.

How can I intensify the leather look effect?
If you pull the clay apart evenly in different directions after rolling out, the leather effect will become more obvious. The further you pull the clay apart, the more obvious the leather effect will be.

Can colours be combined with each other?
Colours can be combined with each other. Twisting them together gently will create a beautiful marbling effects, for instance. It’s also possible to create patterns and colour blends.
Kneading your chosen colours together thoroughly will create a new solid colour.

Can FIMO leather-effect be combined with other oven-hardening types of FIMO (e.g. FIMO soft)?
FIMO leather-effect can be combined with FIMO soft, for instance. 
But its important to note that the more FIMO soft you add to the mix, the less pronounced the leather effect, and flexibility of your hardened pieces, will be.
