Rainbows with neon effect ▪ FIMO DIY | STAEDTLER

Step-by-step tutorial

Knead 3 portions each of FIMO effect neon in yellow, orange, purple and pink until soft.

Then fill the clay extruder with the softened FIMO effect neon pink (Caution: Fill from the bottom and only to a maximum of 2/3). Screw on the motif disc with the middle-sized hole.

Now turn the handle for as long as it takes to extrude all the yellow FIMO effect neon as spaghetti. Cut the spaghetti off at the front of the extruder.
Now clean the rest of the colour from the extruder using a baby wipe and repeat this step with all the other colours.

Next, shape the FIMO spaghetti into a U. Start with yellow, then orange, pink and purple. Press all the FIMO spaghetti together slightly, so that they stick to each other. Make several rainbows with different looks and sizes.

If you like you can also cut out another little circle in rainbow colours. To do this, lay the FIMO spaghetti next to each other, press down slightly and cut out a circle using the small circular cutter.

Now you can either attach your rainbow to a flower pot or turn it into a pretty key tag.

Flower pot: 
Place the FIMO rainbow on your flower pot, press it down firmly and harden both of them in the oven for 30 minutes at 110° C / 230° F.  Leave everything to cool completely. If the rainbow comes loose after hardening, you can reattach it to the flower pot using superglue.

Key tag:
Lay the FIMO rainbow flat on the baking paper and push an eye pin vertically into it. Now harden the rainbow in the oven for 30 minutes at 110° C / 230° F. Leave it to cool completely.

Stick the eye pin fast again using superglue. Now attach a jump ring and the key tag to your rainbow.
