  4. Hi! Your Fimo creations are extremely beautiful! I'm a huge cactus fan too - if you haven't been to the Southwest US you must go! Tucson for saguaro cactus is phenomenal. There's also an incredible botanical garden in Phoenix not far from the ariport.

    I was wondering why you use Fimo brand vs some of the others (I'm about to buy some so would love to know if there's some advantage vs Sculpey for example). Also, how on earth did you make the yellow needles on the cactus and get them to adhere or not bend before baking? Do you have a tutorial I may have missed? Your Fimo veggies are beyond adorable. (If you've not been to Tokyo, go!)

    Very happy to have discovered your blog! Any Fimo tips before my upcoming craft day would be MUCH appreciated!

    THANKS & CONGRATS!

    1. Dear Danielle, Thanks a lot for your kind comment and for the lovely info about cactus gardens! Big hugs!!

      About your question: I use both Fimo and Sculpey iii and both brands are great. I even mix them to make new colors and it works well. About the yellow needles: I have baked them first and then inserted them in the clay again...so simple :"> In fact I use this method of baking in stages in many of my pieces :o) It makes working with clay much easier and more manageable.

      Once again thanks a lot for stopping by!
