Oktoberfest broach made from FIMO leather-effect
This Oktoberfest broach made from FIMO leather‑effect will complete your outfit.
Is your dirndl missing that certain something? This FIMO leather‑effect Oktoberfest broach will set the hearts of all fans of traditional costume racing. The combination of a chocolate brown heart and delicate beads will add the perfect finishing touch to your Oktoberfest outfit.
Roll out a block of FIMO leather‑effect nut into a sheet about 2-3 mm thick using the acrylic roller. Straighten and trim the edges a little.
Tip: The leather effect stands out even better if you move the FIMO sheet gently by hand after rolling it out, pulling it apart a bit.
Now place the FIMO sheet on the baking paper and stamp your name in it using the letter stamps. To do this, simply place the letters back to front in the holder and press them gently and evenly into the FIMO leather‑effect sheet.
Then harden the FIMO leather‑effect sheet on the baking paper in a preheated oven for 30 minutes at 130 °C / 266° F on upper and lower heat. Leave to cool.
Tip: Dust the letter stamps with a little baby powder to ensure they can be removed more easily from the FIMO leather‑effect sheet.
Once the sheet has cooled completely, cut out the heart template. Place it on the FIMO leather‑effect sheet and transfer the shape using a Lumocolor non-permanent.
Now cut the heart out of the FIMO leather‑effect sheet using the scissors.
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.
Decorate the second heart with acrylic wax beads in colours of your choice, sticking them with superglue.
