  • will it stick

    Since my 1st go I haven't had a minute with one thing or another to have another go with my FIMO. Got some ideas though.

    I wondered if I added some of the flowers I made when I made these ones http://www.craftsforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=37869 shown on the plaques to another embellishment I make and then bake will they stick during baking or would I be better baking the new embellishment without the flowers added and glueing the flowers onto it when baked?

    Does that make sense??

    I'd recommend glueing the flowers on after they've been baked as they aren't the same material as the plaque. If it was Fimo on Fimo then they'd stick together better in the baking process.

      Many thanks,

      I planned to make something with fimo, then put the flowers on that before baking. Would they stick to the fimo sufficiently or would I be better glueing them.

      Once the whole embellishment is made then I'll glue that to the plaque.

        Perhaps you could put a dab of Liquid Fimo or Sculpey Bake and Bond on to be sure of a strong fix?

          Kookizu is right, a liquid clay such as Fimo gel would be advisable.

          Baked clay will bond with unbaked clay in the oven, but it can be unpredictable - so using some liquid clay, like Fimo Gel, to bond the pieces together is the way to go.

          Only problem is that Fimo gel has no adhesive qualities when unbaked, so you will need to rely on gravity to keep the pieces together whilst you bake them, or find another cunning plan!
