Of Fimo and Sculpey...

Been working with Fimo lately - though I'm not sure exactly why.. such a pain! I don't know where to begin! How does Wendy Froud do it?! I feel like I'm in a battle with the stuff... but when its all done and baked... its so awesome! Also - Wendy Froud works with it!! ... I'm a fan girl <<

Nora here was made with Sculpey... I don't think I could have done her face with Fimo... But that said - I suppose it will just depend on the project I'm working on, eh? Nice to have options - though I think I'm heading into Fimo on the tail end of one of their lines - such is the story of my life!

Ah well! Back to work I goooo...

much love ~

Hi! Love your work, its just beautiful! (found you via etsy) I was wondering if you have a particular reason for using the oven bake clays? I have used the airdry clays (such as Premier La Doll) and find the consistancy very easy to work with, while I maybe am too impatient to work with the oven bake clays that need kneading to make them workable (and they split so easy?). Is there a particular finish that you get with the oven bake clay that you prefer? Just curious ;)
