Step-by-step tutorial

Shape 2 portions of FIMO effect pearl black into a ball with your hands.

Tip: Work in progress and left-over material should be protected against sun and heat and can be stored in a screw-top jar or in cling film to protect it from dust and dirt.

Knead the ball until soft and roll out into a longish cord.

Cut the FIMO cord to 16 cm using the cutter.

Then bend the FIMO cord into a circle and join the ends. Repeat these steps for all four FIMO colours until you have a total of 16 rings.

Now harden the FIMO rings in a preheated oven for 30 minutes at 110° C / 230° F.

Once the rings have hardened and cooled, make an egg cup by gluing four different coloured FIMO rings one on top of the other using the glue gun. Repeat the process with the other FIMO rings to create 4 egg cups.
