Mix the FIMO leather-effect to the desired brown tones using the above-mentioned colours and quantities.
Use the acrylic roller to roll the material into a thin sheet. This also works very well with a clay machine. The thinner the sheet, the better.
Tip: The leather-effect is even more striking if you gently move the FIMO leather-effect sheet again with your hands after rolling it out and pull it slightly apart.
Now place the FIMO sheet on a baking tray lined with baking paper and harden it in the preheated oven for 30 minutes at 130 °C / 266° F top/ bottom heat.
Then place the template on the cooled FIMO sheet and trace it with a Lumocolor non-permanent marker.
Now cut out the individual shapes with the scissors. You can easily remove marker paint residues with water or a baby wipe.
Cut out the ornamental motif four times. Cut into two of the elements half-way. Make sure to cut one from above and one from below so that they can be pushed into each other.
Fix the pushed-together elements with superglue. Then glue the half elements between the already glued elements.
Tip: Glue a string directly between the elements.
Punch a hole in the middle between each prong of the star using a hole punch.
Now thread the needle. Then feed the needle through the individual holes to create a beautiful pattern. Tie the ends of the thread together.
