Leather-effect Oven-Bake Clay
Preheating your oven for leather-effect FIMO is a key step. Heat the oven to about 130degC or 266degF for 30 minutes. Different ovens regulate the temperature differently. A thermometer is highly recommended for accurate temperature control. It is also important to follow the hardening instructions on the back of each pack carefully. Once you have reached the correct temperature, you can harden the FIMO on one baking sheet at a time.
FIMO leather-effect is an oven-hardening modelling clay that can be worked in the same way as FIMO soft clay. The final hardened material feels similar to leather. It can be shaped, lettered, or punched, and is ideally suited for making jewellery or home decor items. You can also create leather-effect bows using this versatile material.
First, prepare your clay. You can either buy a baking dish or make your own. In order to make leather-effect oven-baked clays for bows, you can follow a simple pattern. You can download the pattern by clicking on the “GET PATTERNS” tab above. After hardening the clay, fold it into the desired shape and use a leather cord to attach it.
Buttons made from polymer clay
To make polymer clay buttons for bows, you first need to prepare your materials. You can find button cover kits at fabric stores. You’ll also need a shank backing, which is a flat disk with a wire loop on the back. To finish your buttons, you can sand the edges and use a nail file to remove any ragged edges. You can also use a soft paintbrush to remove fingerprints from the clay. If you can’t find a label for your clay, you can look online for directions.
Once you’ve sculpted the shape, you can start shaping the buttons. You can use texture sheets or mokume gane stacks to create textured buttons. Alternatively, you can use veneers, such as Stroppel Cane and Pixelated Retro Cane. A spiraling pinwheel lentil is another fun way to use up scraps. It’s easy to make buttons with polymer clay when you have some scraps lying around.
If you have a sculpey Premo or Sculpey clay in your home, you can easily make your own polymer clay buttons. These handmade buttons are easy to make and have virtually unlimited design possibilities. They can be made into 3D shank buttons for use on thicker wool. Roll out polymer clay with an acrylic roller or pasta machine to make your buttons as thick or thin as you want.
You can use a toothpick tool to make buttonholes. This tool consists of three toothpicks lined up in a row. Use the center one to press the center of the button impression. Once you’re satisfied with the shape, you can use a DIY hand drill to drill the buttonholes. To finish your button, wrap it with tape. If the button is a little rough, lightly sand it with sandpaper.
