Time to Make
1 hour to make the stamps plus baking time. 2 hours total.
How to Make
- Create your stamps using balls of fimo moulded into your desired shape. Roll over the top of them gently with a rolling pin to ensure the surface is as flat as possible before you start making your patterns.
- Press patterns into them with toothpicks, cutlery or buttons to create a variation of stamps. Decorative buttons work well, as do the end of a teaspoon to create petal like semi circles. Experiment as you go, as you can always roll your fimo back into a ball and start again.
- Bake the stamps in the oven according to the instructions.
- Use a glue gun to attach the stamps to the cork tops. These will be the handles and will help you press them into the surface of your clay.
- Use the stamps to create patterns on a variety of clay projects, such as decorative tiles and plates, or on smaller pieces to create buttons and beads for jewellery.
When creating your fimo stamps, try to keep the surface that you will be printing with as flat as possible to allow as much of the surface as possible to make contact with the clay.
