Today I'm making little polymer clay (or FIMO) apples.
- An eyepin to push into your clay, this is only optional
-Varnish for fimo and a brush to apply this varnish. I bought some true fimo varnish but you can also use some transparant nail varnish. Or you can leave the apple just the way it is, without a shiny cote layer.
-An oven that can bake your clay for 30 min on 110 degrees. This is how FIMO clay is baked, follow the instructions on your clay!
With the red clay, make a ball
With a tool you make a hole in your ball, I used the back of a pencil, with my pinkie finger I sculpture the hole untill it looks like the hole you can find on an apple!
Place your stem on the top of your apple, I use a toothpick to attach the stem, you gently push in the brown clay into the red.
Time for the leaf! Make a little, little I say, green ball.
Push it between your fingers and shape into a leaf.
With a knife, needle, toothpick... Make lines on your leaf and use the same toothpick technique to attach your leaf to the apple.
