Instructions for lanterns in a lacy look 1

Knead translucent FIMO effect until it‘s soft and then use the acrylic roller or clay machine to roll it out flat.

2

Cover the lantern with the sheet of rolled-out FIMO and, working from the middle to the outside, remove any air bubbles by smoothing over the clay with your finger. Use the blade to cut off any excess FIMO along the top and bottom edges of the glass. Now press the modelling clay evenly onto the glass along its upper edge and join the sides together.

3

Position the lace doily on the glass as required. Then use the acrylic roller to roll all over it applying a little pressure as you do so in order to emboss the pattern in the modelling clay. Carefully peel the doily off.

Tip: Unfinished items and left-over bits of material can be stored in a sealed plastic bag or airtight container, e.g. a plastic box or jar. 2

Use your finger to gently rub the silver metallic powder over the elevated areas. Make sure you apply the metallic powder to the elevated parts only, leaving the recesses out. Then harden the lantern in the oven for 30 minutes at 110°C. The FIMO becomes translucent when hardened in the oven. Once cool, moisten the sanding sponge with water and use it to smooth over the edges and surface. Finish off by varnishing the entire lantern with a protective coat of gloss varnish.
