FIMOair is available in four varieties: FIMOair, FIMOair light, FIMOair granite-effect and FIMOair wood-effect. What all four have in common is that you don’t need to use an oven or kiln to harden the clay. These modelling clays can simply be left to dry naturally in the air, and are still extremely break-resistant once dry. Browse the products available from STAEDTLER and discover the wide range of possibilities FIMOair has to offer.

FIMOair – Easy shaping combined with quick and simple use

STAEDTLER FIMOair is an air-drying modelling clay. The drying time depends on the thickness of the modelled item. This means you don’t have to harden your modelled items in the oven. In addition, once they have dried, your items will still be extremely break-resistant. You can start finishing pieces as soon as they have dried. FIMOair is available in four varieties that are ideal for creating a range of different items: FIMOair, FIMOair light, FIMOair granite-effect and FIMOair wood-effect.

FIMOair wood-effect – wood-like modeling clay

FIMOair wood-effect is available in a wood-like colour. The clay contains cellulose fibres, giving modelled items a particularly natural effect. Creative amateur artists will enjoy using this clay to create dolls, marionettes or sculptures – not least because this modelling clay is extremely hard and break-resistant once it has dried.

The advantages at a glance:

  • Wood-like texture
  • Natural effect
  • Extremely hard and break-resistant once dried
  • Ideal for modelling dolls, marionettes or sculptures
  • Hardened clay can be finished (filed, sawn, carved, drilled, painted, varnished)

FIMOair – Clay-like results without a kiln

STAEDTLER FIMOair modelling clay is available in four colours: white, pale pink, grey and terracotta. Items made from this modelling clay have a clay-like appearance. However, the main advantage is that you don’t need a kiln to achieve these results. FIMOair simply dries naturally in the air. You can then use corresponding accessories to paint, drill or varnish your items to suit your style.

The advantages at a glance:

  • Modelled items have a clay-like appearance
  • No kiln required – items simply dry naturally in the air

FIMOair granite-effect – objects with a granite-like look

FIMOair granite-effect can be used to create works of art with a granite-like look. No kiln is required for FIMOair granite-effect either, as the models air dry.

FIMOair light – For particularly light works of art

Objects made from FIMOair light are particularly light and are used where the weight of the model is important, such as mobiles, pendants, or wall decorations. FIMOair light is available in two colours: white and terracotta and dries in the air without a kiln.

How does FIMOair harden?

FIMOair, FIMOair light, FIMOair granite-effect and FIMOair wood-effect modelling clays are hardened by drying naturally in the air. Depending on which FIMO variety you choose to use, you should keep the following in mind:

FIMO type

What you need to know:

FIMOair, FIMOair light, FIMOair granite-effect and FIMOair wood-effect
  • You can only dry modelled items at room temperature. Do not attempt to accelerate the drying process using a hairdryer or by placing in sunlight. This may result in models cracking.
  • Depending on the thickness of the model, it takes a few hours to a few days for it to harden completely.
  • Turn or rotate the item regularly during the drying process. This will ensure that it dries on all sides and does not warp.
