Thank you for the tutorial! :D I'm love and messing with clay! Sadly, I have no idea what to make with the clay so I have tons of it. Do you have any ideas?

Hi!  I've been using a photo frame's glass since I read this, but I came across an awesome upgrade - the loose top from a small glass-topped coffee table!  It's thicker than the photo glass so I feel better when rolling clay on it!

I'm using something similar,, now a glass top from an old 80's stereo system. It's also thicker and has smooth edges! :)

Is there any particular clay you would recommend?

I have only used fimo soft so far, so I can't really recommend anything. Fimo soft is pretty great though!

Thank you, good idea to use toothpicks to add paint, because I don't have paintbrushes that is small enough.

Excuse me, searching for fimo cookies, I found your gallery and with it a lot of fantastic fimo works, you're incredible o_o I made this my favourite (very nice tips! used the one for the icecream, genius hhaha!), but yesterday I tried to make one and it came out, like... horrible is an euphemism. How do you make that... biscuity and wrinkled effect? I can't do it, I tried with a toothpick but... yeah... Yeah.
(and really a piece of fimo can be baked before, added to something and baked again __ ? It doesn't go overbaked or something lol?)

:iconmadizzo:
Madizzo Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012
yes, you can bake an already baked fimo piece again if you want to, nothing will happen to it.
I think the secret to get the crummy effect is to keep the clay cool. I tried to make these cookies this summer when both my hands and the room temperature were hot and it didn't turn out very well. If the clay is warm it will be too smooth to "crack" when you shape the cookie.

This is so well made and you gave so many awesome tips, I'm sure it'll help a lot of people :) I think I'll find an old photo frame and take out the glass too, it looks prettier than what I do right now and I want to start filming video tutorials. Thank you so much for the idea! :heart:

What do you use now? In the beginning I just used to work my clay directly on the table, but polymer clay can really stick to some surfaces. I even found that some of the paint of the table rubbed off from it :O

Looking forward to some awesome tutorials! ;D

I use paper xD I started using wax paper but I thought it was expensive. So I just re-use printed paper, cheap and easy. But I didn't want to use that for tutorials, I wanted something that looked pretty and this is definitely the option I was looking for! I think I may start using it for my regular work too.

And thanks! :la: I'm excited about making them!
