fimo® leather effect clay ornament

After you bake this new FIMO® clay, it looks and feels like leather! It is flexible, bendable and can be cut with scissors, punched or sewn. This clay is ideal for making unique ornaments for your Christmas tree!
Step 1

Slice a piece of ivory clay from the block.

Step 2

Knead and condition until moldable.

Step 3

Roll clay out into a smooth and even sheet that is about 1/8" [0.3 cm] thick.

Step 4

Use an ornament shaped cookie cutter to cut the shape.

Step 5

Use the piercing tool to create a hole in the top of the ornament shape. Set on a parchment paper lined jelly roll pan.

Step 6

Slice a piece of clay from ivory, Dove Grey and Terra Cotta blocks.

Step 7

Repeat Step 2.

Step 8

Roll each into a long, snake-like log. Lay them side by side and twist together until you have a nice marble. Roll the clay into beads.

Step 9

Use the piercing tool to create a hole through the middle of the beads. Add to your jelly roll pan.

Step 10

Bake for 30 minutes at 230°F (110°C). Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

Step 11

Wrap a piece of hemp cord around the top of the ornament a couple of times and tie a knot. Trim ends.

Step 12

Thread another piece of hemp cord through the hole at the top of the clay ornament then both ends through the hole in your clay bead. Tie the hemp in a knot for a hanger.
