My Fimo50 World Project Entry
This year FIMO celebrates it’s 50th birthday! Congratulations to Fimo Staedtler.
In honor of such a milestone, the folks at Fimo Staedtler are celebrating by having polymer clay artists from around the world make a 10 x 10cm tile that will benefit two major polymer clay charities: Dr. Ron LeHocky Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies and the wonderful ladies of Sumunnat in Nepal. You can visit Fimo’s announcement about this project and read more here.
My Fimo50 Contribution:
I wanted to showcase some of the beauty of polymer clay and all of those people who work with it. My tile is entitled “The Door to Discovery.”The Door to Discovery can not begin until you venture to open the door. You never know where the door might lead or what possibilities will present itself. The same is true with polymer clay. It opens us up to a world of possibilities with new ideas, concepts, and techniques just waiting to be found. In order to discover however, you must first be brave enough to open The Door to Discovery.My tile is a fully interactive tile with handmade hinge mechanism that opens all the way to reveal a path that all must travel down. Each little rock around the door has been handmade. The leaf canes are handmade (you can get the FREE tutorial for this leaf cane here) while the flower canes are pre-made canes by Fimo Staedtler.
Thanks for joining me today,
