Knead half a block of FIMO soft white nice and soft. You can also use any other FIMO soft / effect colour.
Now create a long white string using the clay extruder and the motif disc with the largest round hole. To do this, fill the clay extruder from below to a maximum of two-thirds. Unscrew the motif disc and then turn the crank evenly so that the FIMO strand is pressed out. Cut it straight at the end with a blade.
If you don‘t have one, you can also roll the strands by hand. Now cut the same size pieces. Depending on whether you want to make a necklace pendant or earrings, you should estimate the appropriate size. 5 cm are good for earrings.
Now roll different FIMO soft or FIMO effect colours into a thin sheet with the acrylic roller. Here, half a rib per colour is always sufficient. The FIMO soft colours 35, 26, 70, 16 and FIMO effect colours 207 and 803, for example, create a beautiful combination.
Now travel small pieces of each colour and place them on the white FIMO string. Feel free to overlap a little.
Now place a glass plate horizontally on the Terrazzo strand. Push the glass plate back and forth with gentle pressure so that the strand is rolled back and forth. This way, the small pieces of colour connect well with the white FIMO strand. You can also do this by hand. The advantage of using a glass plate is that you don‘t make fingerprints on the FIMO and that the strand becomes evenly thick.
Using a knife, cut the ends straight and shape the strands for the earrings into a half circle.Place the long strand for the chain in a double S. Slide a chain stitch pin into the FIMO strand here at both ends. This is where the chain is later fastened.
Now place the earrings and the necklace pendant on baking paper and let them harden in the oven at 110 ° C / 230 ° F for 30 minutes.
Let everything cool down well and glue the studs with instant adhesive on the earrings. Attach the bending ring to the chain stitch pins and attach your chain. And that‘s it, your stylish Terrazzo FIMO jewellery is finished!
