    when Fimo comes out of the oven, until it cools, it can be quite soft still, but once it cools, it goes hard.
    Have you got a thermometer to check the temperature of the oven?

        I'd pop it back in to the oven for longer time as certainly if the temp is not hot enough, then it won't cook it properly
        It could be that the pendant is too thin to go as hard as the design requires.

          If you mean that the pendant is flexible - this is normal. It is just because the clay is quite thin, and when cooked correctly the clay SHOULD be flexible. If you want it harder, you need to make the pendant thicker.

          If you had underbaked it, the clay would be brittle and just snap in half, not be slightly flexible.

            If you didn't varnish yet, you can bake it again. 15 mnts. And after oven (while hot), put it in ice water.
