Vintage look earrings ▪ FIMO DIY | STAEDTLER

Step-by-step tutorial

Roll out 2 portions of FIMO soft windsor blue intto a sheet by using a clay machine or acrylic roller. The sheet should be about 5mm thick.

Important: From now on, work directly on a surface that can go into the oven. Then you don‘t have to lift the earrings again later and you won‘t distort the round shape.

Lay the FIMO sheet flat on a smooth surface, e.g. ceramic tile or baking paper. Cut out two circles with a round cutter. Remove the leftovers and smooth the edges gently with your fingers.

Roll out half a portion of FIMO effect in each of the colours metallic gold, pearl rosé and pale pink to make a sheet out of each colour. Use the clay machine or the acrylic roller. Each sheet should be the same thickness, about 3mm.

Now lay the FIMO sheets flat on a smooth surface, e.g. ceramic tile or baking paper. Using a small cookie cutter (diameter approx. 3mm), cut out many small circles from each sheets. Remove the leftovers.

Using a toothpick, shape each small circle into a petal.

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.

Place the petals on the blue FIMO circle with the toothpick.

Now mix half a portion of FIMO soft sunflower and a quarter of a portion of FIMO soft windsor blue to create a beautiful dark green. Knead the two colours together by hand until you have a uniform shade of green.

Now form a long thin strand for the flower stems. Roll tiny balls and shape them into leaves. Now decorate the leaves and stems on your flower earrings.

Now roll a long, thin strand from a quarter portion of FIMO effect metallic gold and FIMO soft pale pink.

Lay the two strips together and intertwine them to make a kind of cord. Now wrap the cord around the circle. This creates a nice border.

Now make a hole in the top of each earring. Use either a very small round cutter (diameter approx. 3mm) or a toothpick.

Now harden your earrings in the oven for 30 minutes at 110 ° C / 230 ° F top/bottom heat.

Let everything cool down completely.

Now attach the ear hooks to the earrings with the help of bending rings. Done!
