When we changed our bookcases, we noticed at the bottom near the floor, the back to back bookcases left a perfect mouse hole. So I started joking about putting a mouse there with a piece of cheese.
Then I looked online, and decided Fimo Soft was the way to go. It’s also handy they have creative tips, and one of them is how to make a dangly cat and a dangly mouse. So we went to De Banier in Aalst, and bought all the Fimo that was needed.
The fimo lingered on the bookshelf for a couple of weeks, cause I never had time to sit down and play with modeling clay. But then yesterday, after my written dutch exam, I decided it was time to have some fun. So I printed the “instructions” (they’re not detailed instructions, if you want to see something a bit better, check out the sheep, I think that will be next in queue), and put an oilcloth on the table, and started playing with Fimo. After some tweaking here and there, and adjusting the amount of clay for the head and ears, I actually had enough to make arms and legs out of Fimo, which suited me. And the result was baked this morning (before going to the oral dutch exam):
Since I had some grey clay left, I also made a tiny mouse, and a dish:
And we all know, mice love cheese, so I made some cheese as well. And since I was already playing with Fimo, I remembered my mother in law had seen some mushrooms for her dollhouse at DaWanda, but I found them too expensive, and told her I’d make some for her. So I also made a prototype of those mushrooms:
And thus, we conclude that playing with modeling clay is not only for kids. Because I had a blast doing this.
