Roll the three FIMO blocks into a ball and roll it out into a plate with the acrylic roller. The plate should be a little higher than the can and reach once around it.
Tip: Unfinished items and left-over bits of material can be stored in a sealed plastic bag or airtight container, e.g. a plastic box or jar.
Place the can against the FIMO. Lay the FIMO once around the can and cut off the protruding residues with your knife. The ends should not overlap but connect.
Tip: To smoothen the connecting ends, place your hand inside the can and roll it gently back and forth on the surface until the ends are blended together.
Now stamp motives into the FIMO all around with the leaf stamp. Harden the can in the oven for 30 minutes at 110 degrees Celsius. Now let it cool off. Your vase is finished!
