Under the Sea – have fun with FIMO

Fancy some FIMO inspiration?

Why not make your very own sea life creature for National Marine Week!

Here is a simple step by step guide for making a crab.

1) Cut 3 portions of FIMO with a modelling tool then shape into a ball for the crab’s body. Divide 1 portion of FIMO in half and shape each piece into an oval for the claws.

2) Press the claws on to the body and cut the ends with a modelling tool. Divide 1 portion of FIMO into 8 pieces for the legs. Press the legs on to the body.

 3) Roll tiny balls in a different FIMO colour then flatten with your fingers and press on to the body. Roll 2 balls for the eyes, press them in place and make holes in the middle with a cocktail stick.
