FIMO chunky rings

FIMO chunky rings
45 minEasy

Big, bigger, chunky! Instead of delicate rings with intricate details, fashion insiders are now swearing by big brash designs – known as chunky rings. They might feature a plaited pattern, colour gradients or a rainbow design – the bigger and brighter the better.  
With FIMO leather-effect, you can now make your own chunky rings with a colourful design and great visual effects. 

Chunky Rings ▪ FIMO DIY | STAEDTLER

Step-by-step tutorial

For a marble-effect chunky ring, cut one and a half potions of FIMO leather-effect in the colours lagoon and ivory.

Now roll out each colour into a string 15 cm long.

Twist both strings together until you have a marble effect you are happy with.

Then roll out the string lengthwise (approx. 15-20 cm) using the acrylic roller.

Harden everything in the preheated oven at 130°C/ 265° F top/bottom heat for 30 minutes.

Now draw a strip 1 cm wide on the cooled FIMO sheet with a Lumocolor non-permanent marker and a ruler.

Then cut the strip along the lines with the scissors.

Now adjust the strip to the desired finger. Mark the end of the strip with a line where the strip overlaps. Cut the strip to size.

Punch a hole at both ends using a pair of punch pliers.

Make a small bow from the satin ribbon and thread it through the holes. Tie the ends with a knot. Now your chunky ring is finished.

Of course, you can also try out as many other designs as you like. Find more inspiration for different looks here.
