After having built FIMO-miniatures for Power Grid recently, I would now like to share a small How-To with you:
A: You need:
1. cutting board
2. sharp knife / scalpel
3. some matches
4. FIMO (hey, that's what it's all about)
I used the following colors (Erhard Faber Fimo):
Red No. 2
Black No. 9
Bright yellow No. 10
Metallic silver No. 81
Cognac No. 76
And here's how to model the pieces
Need: Red No. 2 / Bright Yellow No. 10
Form a long string of red Fimo, and cut equal pieces with a sharp knife
Bake them amd let them cool down (there you have your barrel), in the meantime, form a string of yellow and seperate it into small disks, now use the scalpel to make "rays" out of the disk. These can now easily be attached to the barrels as radiation markings ---> bake.
Need: Cognac No. 76 / Black No.9
Lightly mix black and Brown (abt 70% Brown / 30% Black) so that it forms a natural pattern, now start to roll small spheres (about the 5mm diameter) stick three of them together in a triangular shape and place a fourth one on top of the them. ---> bake
Need: Black No. 9 / Metallic silver No. 81
Same method as with the uranium - roll a long string and cut it into equal pieces with a scalpel. Now use a a match to emboss a circle at about half height. sculp little dots (about the size of a matchhead) of metallic silver FIMO, press them flat and place them ón the top of the "barrel" - they form the cap. ---> bake
Need: Metallic silver No. 81 / Mix of all other Fimo
And again, roll a string and cut it (the garbage cans should have the biggest diameter of all resources). Form another string and cut it into disk (the lid). Use a match to sculpt vertical grooves into the cans, at a regular pattern. Then, mix some small portions of the other FIMO together (should give a nive "dirty" looking garbage) and place it on top of the can. Looks also nice, if you like, add some "spills" to the side of the can.
Finally, place the lid on top of the garbage and.....
That's all folks
P.S.:I will add some pics of my FIMO, as soon as I am home tonight
Where are the pics??
and .... pics ????
