DIY flower pot made of FIMOair granite

DIY flower pot made of FIMOair granite
30 min Easy

Let's turn something old into something new! In no time at all, you can create new and beautiful flowerpots for your favourite flowers – from old yoghurt pots. Upcycling is the trend – try it for yourself! FIMOair granite gives your recycled pots the perfect stone or marble look and creates a perfect new home for plants of all kinds.

Step-by-step tutorial

Roll out a block of FIMOair granite with the acrylic roller to create an approx. 6 mm thick sheet on a piece of baking paper.

Tip: To achieve an even thickness, you can place the pencils next to the clay being rolled out. The acrylic roller will roll over the pencils and so roll out the FIMOair granite clay evenly.

Make sure you have rinsed the yoghurt cup off with hot water, dried it well and removed the labels before use.

Place the cup on the FIMOair granite sheet.

Place the FIMOair granite around the cup and cut off the rest of what protrudes using the cutter. The ends should not overlap, but join together.

Tip: To smooth the ends that meet, roll the cup on the mat with gentle pressure until the ends are blended.

Smooth out the FIMOair granite. You can smooth out any cracks, transitions and unevenness with a moistened modelling spatula or a damp finger.

Let your flower pot dry at room temperature for at least 24 hours.

To set some gold accents on your flower pot, take the size for the leaf metal and use the brush to apply it in the desired area.

Wait until the applied milky liquid goes transparent (approx. 15 minutes). In the meantime, have the leaf metal ready.

Gently apply the leaf metal with your finger and pat lightly with a clean, dry brush.

Remove excess leaf metal by brushing over the edges with a thick stippler brush.

Your elegant flower pot is ready and you can surely plant something in it soon.
