Step-by-step tutorial

Divide the FIMOair light block into approx. 5-6 equal parts, depending on how many different colours you want to mix.

Now take a small dab of an acrylic paint of your choice then knead the paint and FIMOair light together, wearing the rubber gloves,until the FIMOair light has completely taken on the colour. Now repeat this with all the colours.

Roll out the individual FIMOair light colours to approx. 0.5 mm thick. Now you can cut out all shapes of your choice. Using the stamp set, you can create phrases such as "Happy Easter" in FIMOair light or use a small heart-shaped cutter to add details to the egg.

Tip: Do not roll out the FIMOair light too thinly, as this can lead to the shapes warping when drying.

A small hole must now be added to all the cut-out shapes so that they can be hung up with ribbon or string after drying. Once you are satisfied with the result, leave the shapes to dry at room temperature for at least 24 hours.

Tip: To prevent the shapes from warping when drying, rotate them at least every 2-4 hours at the beginning of the drying process.

When the shapes are completely dry, all that’s left to do is thread the string through the holes and tie a knot in it.

Your fabulous Easter decorations are finished!
