|Cooked, but unglazed|
- An old bowl to use as a mold (dessert bowls seem to be a good size for yarn)
- A sharp tool for carving out a hole that the yarn can feed through
- Aluminium Foil
- Wrap your bowl in Aluminium foil to prevent the Fimo from sticking.
- Start putting Fimo on your bowl any way you like.
- I started with a dark purple centre
- Then twisted purple and blue together and looped it around the purple circle and pushed it flat
- I did the same thing for the rest of the colours so the rings went:
|Purple; Purple+Blue; Blue + Green|
|Green + Yellow|
|Yellow + Orange|
|Orange + Red|
|The top is just each colour rolled out and stuck together, then pressed on neatly|
- Make sure when you reach the rim, don't put Fimo over the edge. I did by accident and after cooking I ended up having to break them off to remove the bowl.
3. Use something sharp to carve out a curly spiral or hole for the yarn to be fed through for tension and guiding.
4. Cook in the oven on 110 degrees Celcius for half an hour, then let it cool. Once it's cooled down it should be fully set.
|In the oven. My curl looked so pretty before it broke off.|
5. Remove the bowl and alfoil.
6. Glaze & enjoy :D
I'm really happy with how it turned out, but I might have to experiment with some air-drying clay or something a little cheaper. The Fimo has awesome colours, but it's a it expensive to buy enough to make the bowl thicker.
