This is an old book (there's no date, but I'm guessing at least 70's) of projects and things to make with Fimo Clay.  I've only included pictures of the finished projects, but there are instructions for everything.  I guess this is the English version of a German book because some fo the pictures and things they made have German words on them.  It even show how to make chess pieces and marionettes.

Oh, that is S-O-O interesting!  I thought I knew about most of even the old Eberhard Faber books, but I'd never seen that one!  Is there an actual title anywhere?

I'm especially intrigued about the marionettes and the chess pieces you mentioned.  Would you mind describing them just a bit more???

TIA!

I'm guessing the title is just "Fimo" because that's all that's on the front.  Under the title on the inside cover it adds "brilliantly coloured material for creative modelling".  Here's the page about the marionettes.

Here is the page with the chess pieces.  The "historic models" are pretty cool too.

OH.... THANK YOU so much!!!  

That doesn't look much at all like the older EF books I have, though I know they also had a lot of bas relief sculpty things for kids as books too.

Thanks again!... now to go back and take a good, long look....

This is so weird that you posted this! When I was REALLY little, my mom had this book before I even knew what clay was. I remember always being fascinated with it and looking at it over and over again. I had completely forgotten about it until this very moment. Awesome! Smiley

All it says about how to make the chess pieces is that they worked transparent Fimo into regular Fimo to make it look like precious stones.  I have never tried to make them.

Could you give us more publication info? It should be on the front couple of pages, if the volume is intact.

Copyright 1979, Eberhard Faber GmbH, 8430 Neumarkt/Germany.  It's a German book, but this particular one is published in English.  There's no ISBN or any other indentifying things like that.  It looks like it's part of a EFA Hobby series of some kind.
