Once upon a time... about 25 years ago, in the midst 80' I met this fabulous material that came in little blocks of color and its name was FIMO aka Polymer clay Fimo brand. At that time, there was very little information to learn from, but I did have 2 booklets and one Japanese book that gave me ideas and inspiration, and they are safe & sound with me until today. Sculpting miniatures was the main issue for me, especially miniature flowers, animals & creatures.
Back then it was "trendy" to make little round pictures with a flower bouquet,
this was my first try:
I keep these precious ones in a vintage tin from my grandma, these two are brooches, and the metal bases are amazingly crafted and in excellent quality.
