FIMO

The first modelling clay that could be oven-hardened was FIMO. In the middle of the 20th century, clay was developed. Käthe Kruse, a well-known doll maker in her own right, set out to create a suitable clay at that time so that doll heads could be modelled in as much detail as possible.

What is the difference between FIMO and polymer clay?

A brand of polymer clay is called Fimo. In actuality, this modelling clay was the first to be commercially available that could be oven-hardened. You may wonder what polymer clay is. It is a form of PVC-based hardening modelling clay (polymer polyvinyl chloride).

What is FIMO used for?

Numerous things, like jewellery, accessories, and tiny ornaments, are made with it. The modelling clay is molded and then cooked for about 30 minutes at 130 °C (265 °F) in a conventional or toaster oven to solidify it. It can be drilled, painted, sanded, and finely sliced after baking. We have accessories and tools to make your life easier when working with the clay.  Check out our kids, Toolbox and multi-block sets.
