Antelope Fimo Tubes:  7x9mm - Bag of 100 pieces = $20.00 per bag (20 cents each!!)


What is Fimo?

Patterns or pictures are made by stacking different colors and different shapes of polymer clay (FIMO) in thin strips about 3 feet long one on top of ther other until a tube at least 6 inches thick is formed. This "tube" is called a cane. The artist who lays up this cane has to be very precise and see that the different colors run perfectly from one end to the other, otherwise the picture will not be the same at various points on the cane. This all means that you should be able to slick through the cane anywhere its length and it will be exactly the same as it appears on each end.

Once the cane is completed, it is carefully rolled down by hand on a flat surface until it is about 3-4 inches thick. This rolling down also makes the cane very much longer, probably about 6 feet at this stage. This process has to be done very carefully so as not to distort the image, because if this happens, the completed cane cannot be used, nothing can be retrieved and it cannot be repaired. A cane has a shelf life of about a year and sections can be cut off to insert into other canes being built, which is why images will appear on tubes or discs or blocks.

The cane can be rolled down to as little as 5mm and still retain the full original picture. To make the tube beads, thin slices of the cane are wrapped around waste clay, which in turn is wrapped around wire rods, then cut to length and baked in a regular oven. All FIMO has to be finally baked as it will otherwise remain soft.

If you break one of these discs in half, you will see the picture running right through from one side to the other and perhaps understand more fully how FIMO beads and discs are created. They are not easy to make.

Now you know as much as we do. Never let it be said that Trash City is not an educational place to shop! :-)
