- Fimo (available from craft shops/ ebay)
- Gold paint
- Cheap necklace chains
- Rolling pin
- Scalpel & a ruler
- Cutting mat
Use the paper to make geometric stencils to cut from the Fimo. Roll the Fimo on a cutting mat, then with a sharp scalpel and ruler cut around your stencil. Use a pen to make holes for the chain to feed through and then bake your shapes on a foiled baking tray for 30 mins on 110ºC or 230ºF remembering to leave them to cool and harden once baked. Now you’re free to paint the gold areas. You will probably need at least three coats and it’s sensible to let each coat dry before moving on to the next. Finally thread the chain through the holes. You may need to temporarily remove a metal end that might prevent the chain from fitting through.
