February 2016

Valerie was demonstrating and talking about making buttons using Fimo clay. It is readily available in craft shops and comes in lots of colours and can be moulded into various shapes for many uses such as buttons. It can also be used to make bigger handles for  machine knitting tools that are easier to use if your grip is challenging due to arthritis or other conditions. Once the clay has been moulded into shape it is baked.

The FIMO compound is made of plastic powder, plasticisers and additives.
While baking in the oven, the plasticiser makes the plastic powder gel; once cooled off, it forms a solid matter

 The pictures and details from the meeting are to be added soon.  Meanwhile here is a link to the website. There are lots of ideas and help.
