Staedtler Leather Effect Clay is an Awesome Gifting Option

We had the opportunity to receive a sample in exchange for a honest an unbiased review.
I was pretty excited to receive a FIMO Leather Effect Clay Craft set from Staedtler. I've done a few crafts but clay is not one of them. So I can't wait.

Are you wondering what Staedtler's FIMO leather effect clay is? If so, please continue reading. FIMO leather-effect is an oven-hardening modeling clay. This clay can be shaped and worked in the same way as the FIMO soft. The cool thing is after this clay dries it will feel and look like leather. You can even feel this effect.

FIMO leather effect is hardened for 30 minutes at 130 C/266 F. After the clay is hardened the thin rolled sheets are highly flexible. They can be bent, cut with scissors, sewn or punched. It is ideal for making necklaces, bracelets and earrings. I already have so many ideas for this modeling clay. It can be used as home decoration and I am all about that. I love making decor for my home.

This modeling clay is one of the best known and most popular. If your in the crafting community you probably already know just how many ways this clay can be used. Once your masterpiece is hardened you can use a drill on it, sand it and polish it. Varnishes are also available at Staedtler to add a beautiful finish.

The FIMO leather effect is ideal for amateur artists as well as professional artists. This is also used among schools for children. If you enjoy making jewelry, figures, sculptures and home decor, you should try this leather effect modeling clay. This comes in sets as well as individual in a number of bright vibrant colors with lots of great effects. There is a wide array of practical tools and accessories that enable you to work with the modeling clay.

The FIMO clay is a basic recipe developed by Sophie Rehbinder Kruse in 1939. She is the daughter of world-renowned German dollmaker Kathe Kruse. The modeling clay has been manufactured in Germany by STAEDTLER. In addition to the oven-hardening FIMO in a variety of colors They also offer air-drying FIMO.

I just love that the ideas for the FIMO clay are endless. You can create something beautiful for yourself or even give a set as a gift for someone else to create a work of art. The accessories they offer help to make your project amazing. The FIMO effect available in many different colors, including pastel colors, glitter colors, and many more creates a great effect.

STAEDTLER offers many tips and tricks to using the modeling clay. If you decide to use this modeling clay that is really like no other clay I have used, I suggest checking out their web sites. They even make sure to explain how to best store and take care of the clay. While other air drying clay needs to be stored in air tight jars the oven-hardening clay does not. It does however need to be protected from dust and avoid contact with PVC and polystyrene.

This oven-hardening clay is super easy to work with. This faux leather is awesome. I feel like there are so many projects that can be made that are trendy right now. There are some great accessories available to assist you in creating something beautiful. They offer clay shapers and acrylic rollers. Jewelry accessories include a bead roller and bead-piercing pins. There are moulds and shaped cutters.

This is an awesome way to spend some time in doors this winter. This modeling clay has been manufactured with high quality ingredients and its affordable. Whether you want to craft with it yourself or involve your children in some fun family time. It also can be a calm relaxing time for yourself kneading and preparing the clay. This is a great way to use the imagination, there are so many design possibilities.

The STAEDTLER Group has more than 3,000 employees worldwide, enabling it to position itself successfully in the international market. The company’s international character is strikingly underlined by its systematic expansion to 9 manufacturing plants worldwide – including four in Germany – and its presence in 26 countries globally through its affiliated companies.
