Fimo has long been one of the best go-to polymer clay brands on the market, it is ready to mould straight away, easy to knead and shape, and it is simple to cure in a conventional oven at a relatively low temperature.
Once Fimo polymer clay has been cured in a conventional oven it is not necessary to seal it with varnish or similar, unlike some other brands. However, you may wish to add a coat of varnish to really give your piece a superb finish. This Fimo Gloss Varnish will provide a high shine to your clay, enhancing the colours and making a really professional job! It is water-based and will dry to a clear, glossy & protective transparent surface. Treating your finished model with this varnish will also make it retain its colour excellently and both be fade resistant and weatherproof.
You can use the varnish all over your model, or perhaps paint it very carefully onto specific parts to ado a further interest & texture, for example, you could gloss a model vase with flowers, but leave the flowers natural matte as they would be in nature.
Modelling is a great creative craft for young and older alike. We recommend Fimo for age 8 and over, adult supervision required for the curing process.
