What you need
|FIMO® soft 8020 Oven-bake modelling clay - Single product lilac||8020-605||1|
|FIMO® 8700 04 Blades - Blistercard with mixed blade set, 3 pieces (1 rigid, 1 flexible and 1 serrated blade), 2 rubber grips||8700 04||1|
ear studs, super glue, toothpicks
First arrange all FIMO soft colours. You will need 1 strip of FIMO soft lilac. Of all the other FIMO soft colours, you will require the following quantities in order to then produce 4 mixed colours.
- Mixed colour 1: 3 white strips, 1 strip sunflower
- Mixed colour 2: 1 strip of sunflower, 1⁄2 strip cognac, 1⁄2 strip white
- Mixed colour 3: 2 strips of plum, 1⁄2 strip indian red, 1⁄8 strip black
- Mixed colour 4: 1 strip of plum, 1 strip of white
Knead the FIMO soft colours for each mixed colour until a new, uniform colour shade has been created.
Now roll each of the five colours into a thin string and cut seven pieces of the same size. These pieces now have to be shaped into small drops/flower petals.
Take the toothpick, place the two lilac-coloured petals at the tip of the toothpick and press them around it. Repeat this with all the colours so that each colour is arranged in a circle around the centre of the flower.
To create a straight surface, cut a piece off at the base, using the blade. The ear stud is later glued on here.
Repeat for the second ear stud. Now harden both flowers in the preheated oven for 30 minutes at 110°C.
Let everything cool down properly. Now the ear studs can be glued in place with super glue and your individual anemone flower earrings finished.
