How do you harden FIMO effect in the oven?
Once you have finished modelling your items from FIMO, you need to harden them to make them stable. To do this, proceed as follows:
- Pre-heat the oven to 110°C.
- Line a baking tray with baking parchment or aluminium foil and carefully place the modelled items on the tray.
- Harden them in the oven for 30 minutes. For best results, use an oven thermometer to check the temperature during hardening.
- Allow the modelled items to cool down completely before continuing to work on them using the relevant FIMO Accessories for surface treatment.
Tip: In case individual parts of the hardened item break off, you can easily reattach them using a two-component adhesive.
