Been meaning to post these for a while, super fun to do, a tad fickle to make.
If anyone has any hints/tips to revive 3 year old fimo from being a crumbly mess that'd be fabulous Sad
Don't want to throw it out, i've tried liquid clay and water which seem to work after ALOT of kneading abd bruised hands..

Love Hearts

aw the hearts are cute. have you tried a bit of mineral oil to soften it? baby oil or conola oil works too, at least thats what I use to soften clay for frosting. Iv also read that some people chop it up realy fine first before mixing or try putting it in a baggie then sit on it for a while so you heat it up lol and it will be a little softer then if you just dive right in and warm it with your hands while kneading.

You've made some really cute things! The hearts are my favorite. I wish I had some helpful tips to revive your clay, but I haven't much experience with that material.

I'll need to try the oil and see if that helps, it is probably past it's use date, but seems such a waste Sad
I've done the bum heat attempt before when lino-printing, some of that stuff is ridiculous!
Thank you for the kind comments and helpful tips!
