How to Paint 3D Roses Using Super Softened STAEDTLER Fimo

Excited to share the video on Painting 3D Roses with Super Softened STAEDTLER Fimo.

It's a nail technician's technique, applied to polymer clay.
I love that this Fimo version of the rose allows me time to play with the shapes. The acrylic powder and liquid that I use to create 3D nail art has a very fast cure time and I always feel rushed. 

This really is a very versatile way to make delicate blossoms. 
Can't wait to hear what you think of it.

Thanks Girls!
I'm looking forward to hearing from you after you try this one. It's got me thinking of tons of other flowers to try. Maybe pansies next?

Tonja Lenderman said...

Just curious. :) DO you sell your work online?

Very awesome, easy to follow and looks to fun not to try!! Thank you so much for sharing. I can't wait to see how mine turns out.

Tonja, the instructions are my main focus.
I don't usually reproduce pieces for sale. (Although, I have been working on some secret schemes to be announced later in the year.)
I do however, consider requests from new clients who manufacture or distribute art and craft materials... As long as they don't conflict with clients I currently work for.
I will only write and design for companies and products that I believe in and trust.

YES, DO A PANSY TUT...I love pansies! Also wondering if I could use liquid clay instead of the deco that you used? I live so far from everywhere...I have to have my shopping list together when I go for supplies! And sometimes they don't have what I WANT.... life on the prairies!

Oh Hello There Anonymous!
Pansies it is!

My preferred polymer is Fimo and I love their liquid clay (called Fimo liquid Deco Gel).

I chose it for it's clarity and how easily it mixes into the clay.

It also hardens to a non brittle finished product when heat set.

I'm not sure how other brands would turn out.

Love it. Works so much better than on a soft clay base. I used to paint wood like this many years ago and tried it on polymer with a soft base. It turns out ok but I was never happy with it. I never thought to soften the clay this much. Fabulous and thank you for sharing. Cant wait to try it. I miss painting and love this look. Hugs.
