  • Hello...

    ...I thought it was about time I said 'hi' to everyone here seeing as I've been hanging around for a while, lol. My background is in painting but I've given up taking commissions as I'm too busy now looking after my young grandson during the day. I LOVE crafts - any crafts, and right now I'm into mixed media collages and wood plaques etc.

    I would like to ask a question too if it's allowed at this point, and that is: Is Fimo and original sculpey, one and the same? I've done a search for both and from what I see they are, but I'm still not sure? I've used fimo in the past but a project I want to do states to use original sculpey, and that's where I'm getting confused. If anyone can help I'd be really grateful.

        No. Don't worry, most everyone will see it here and you will get several useful answers. Not from me I might add. I do fabric related crafts mostly. Nice to see you here.

                Thanks for the warm welcome! I don't generally join in with forums until I've checked them out, lol. You all sounded so friendly I couldn't resist (I hate bickering!) There are some brill crafters among you, I come on here every day to see what's new - a bit too often really cause' now I'm behind with all my own bits and pieces!

                      Hello and to the forum....I asked my hubby about the differences between 'original sculpy' and 'fimo', as he's a sculptor, he says that they are very similar with just a slightly different feel to them, but they are close enough that you can mix them together if needed. He personally doesn't like using them, prefering 'super sculpy firm grey' and then painting the item after baking with acrylics. I hope this helps.

                        Jo, that really helps, but isn't the super sculpey harder to condition and to use than all the others? Painting it after baking is what I want to do so that's great!
