Since the key ring consists of three balls of different sizes, you will need different amounts of the relevant FIMO soft colours: ½ portion of antique rosé, ½ portion of taupe, 1 portion of royal violet. Roll each one into a ball by hand.

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 potect it from dust and dirt.

Use the bead piercing needle to create a hole in each ball. Make sure the hole in the bead is large enough to thread the elastic cord through later.

Now thread each ball on to a bead piercing needle and hang it over a heat resistant container to ensure no dents arise during hardening. Harden the beads in the oven at 110° C / 230° F for 30 minutes.

Once they have cooled, thread them onto the elastic cord. To do this, take two lengths of cord and attach one end of each to the key ring. Thread the FIMO balls onto the two lengths of cord and knot the cords at the bottom. And you’re done!
