Fimo

Fimo is a brand name of polymer clay.  Other popular brands are Premo!, Cernit, Kato Polyclay, and others.  This is a man-made clay that hardens at low temperatures (230 – 275 degrees), verses earthen clays that fire at high heats and require a kiln.  Fimo and other brands of clay come in a rainbow of colors and offer incredibly versatile applications across a wide range of crafts.  Here you’ll find a list of some helpful projects and tutorials.
