How does it work?

FIMO Colour Mixing Technique ▪ How to | STAEDTLER

Take a look at the mix recipe of your desired colour and prepare the required FIMO colours. First, you need to roll out a block of the necessary FIMO colours into exactly the same thickness using the acrylic roller. This works best if you place a pencil (with 6 edges) of the same thickness next to the mass to be rolled out. So, for example, two identical pencils. Now roll the acrylic roller over the pencils and roll out the FIMO mixture evenly.

Then use the cutters of your choice (e.g. a square is very suitable), to punch out the exact number of tiles specified in the mixing recipe.

Then knead the cut-out tiles all together until a uniform colour shade has been created.

New inspiration for individual ideas

With our suggestions and instructions, you can easily mix your own colours with FIMO soft and FIMO effect as you desire. This creates your own colour worlds, which you can use indiviually for new craft projects. This not only highlights your individuality, but also creates unique designs.
