Just trying out some techniques to better my Fimo-ing
Sadly I cant get hold of the fimo liquid stuff to make whipped cream so I'm just trying to make it through by different effects with cocktail sticks and my trusty scalpel.

They are great-esp for a first attempt!

Didn't know there was a liquid fimo-did wonder how they got the whipped cream effect, but then Im in north east UK as well!

Portal has got to be my number one favorite game to just sit down for an hour and beat it. Cheesy great job

Those are very nice!

There are other things you can use besides liquid clay though to thin down solid clay for icings, frostings, etc.... here are some suggestions from my Miniatures page:

THINNING solid clay
Solid clay (translucent, white, Pearl, or a regular color) can be thinned with various materials to create icings and glazes; the more thinner added, the thinner the icing/glaze will be ...some possibilities are:
--liquid clay (any brand that's translucent... or the original opaque white version of liquid clay by Sculpey called "Liquid Sculpey")
--Diluent (now called "Sculpey Clay Softener")
.......if either of those 2 is added to baked clay, it must be baked again to cure (regular temp... can be baked multiple times)
--vegetable oil... glycerin... mineral oil... Vaseline
--rubbing alcohol (let sit awhile before baking though)
--a soft, solid polymer clay:
......most translucent clays are softer than colored ones
......the Sculpeys are also softer (Sculpey, SuperSculpey, or Sculpey III), and FimoSoft (...and fresher bars of Premo, etc., may be quite soft)
.......Mix Quick is a bar of solid clay (mainly translucent) sold as a clay softener by Fimo

For the really runny things, you'd want to use a tinted liquid clay probably but you could also just tint another clear medium like gloss polyurethane, Future (aka Klear, etc.), acrylic mediums, 2-part epoxy resins or glues, or even white glues and other othings.

For more info on those things, check out this page:
(...click on Frostings, Icings, Jellies, etc.)
