Step-by-step tutorial

Cut three pieces of FIMO soft Vanilla (⅓ of a portion each) and roll it into a ball, and flatten them to make a pancake shape.

Using the FIMO modelling tools, create a linear indent around the circumference of the pancake. Repeat on the other two.

Using a paintbrush, shade the outer edges of the pancake with a mustard yellow chalk pastel. Repeat with the other two pancakes.

Place the metal paper clip in between the layers of the pancakes, and secure with some FIMO liquid.

Create a Kawaii face. Create two eye sockets using the FIMO professional small ball tool. Roll two small balls of FIMO soft Black and place them inside of the eye sockets. Roll a very thin piece of FIMO soft Black and shape it into a U shape. Place this onto the face.

Roll two small balls of FIMO effect Rosé and place these next to the eye sockets for cheeks.

Cut out a square shape of FIMO soft Sunflower, using the FIMO blades. Place this onto the Pancake for the butter.

Mix FIMO liquid, and brown chalk pastel together to make maple syrup. Spread this onto the pancakes, top right corner near the butter.

Roll some small balls of FIMO soft Brilliant Blue, and place these onto the Pancake, for the blueberries. Then harden it in the oven for 30 minutes at 130° C / 266°F. Leave to cool.

Glaze the Pancake using FIMO Gloss Varnish.
