> I'm awful with fimo, I almost always overbake it. <


Skerri13, this probably isn't your fault ... there are just a few things to know so that doesn't happen. 
The first is that if you're actually using Sculpey brand polymer clay, it will brown more easily and needs to be baked at a lower temp. 
Also many ovens don't bake at the temp they say they're baking at on the dial, so an oven thermometer is essential --or there are ways to test your oven for overall temp and hot spots with rectangles of thin clay (or even bread to some extent for hot spots).  Always thoroughly preheat your oven before putting clay in, and don't use a "self-cleaning" oven ("continuous cleaning" toaster ovens are okay.
Also, don't bake too close to any oven coils or sides.


There's much more info on how to bake polymer clays on this page, if you want to get more details on the things above, and more:

Don't give up!!

Skerri13, I just noticed I have a link for you at my polymer clay website ... so you couldn't be too bad with clay!

Cute box... hadn't seen one with a corded closure quite like that before.

Btw, the polymerclayinterest yahoogroup is now called Polymer_Clay_People (so the other name doesn't work)....your link to it now just seems to take me to the main yahoogroups page.  Here's the new link to the group if you want to change it:

those are great!!  Cheesy

i have some leftover fimo clay from a swap i'm just finishing, so i decided to start small and make "cocktail beads."  i made green olives using a putrid green and hot pink (for the pimento), little wedges of lime (a darker shade of lime green, more like the real lime's lime green).  i'm trying to think of what else? oh yeah, celery sticks!  gotta have celery for a bloody mary.  and i think i may do rings of lemon and then either make a bracelet or earrings from them all.  the only ones i have left to make are the lemon rings.  so...

hmm anyway i love the sushi earrings!

so did you use white clay and just poke at it for texture?  i read one of the fimo sushi sites and they say to use all this other stuff. i want to keep it cheap and simple.  so how EXACTLY did you get yours to look like that? i love it!!
