Make colourful clay feathers

Make colourful clay feathers

How to instructions

  • 1

    Choose which colours of Fimo clay you want to use for your feathers. Stack small pieces of clay on top of one another and roll out the colours.

  • 2

    Arrange small balls of clay on top of the rolled-out clay, to give your feathers spots if you like. Roll the clay a little more, to stick the new pieces to the original stack.

  • 3

    Place the clay on a pan lined with baking paper and harden at 130°C for 30 minutes. Let cool.

  • 4

    Cut or carve feathers out of the clay. Use punch pliers to make a hole at the top for a hanger.

  • 5

    Last, use a scalpel to make thin fringe from the centre, angled out on either side of the feather. For a nice looking feather, you can also cut out a few pieces of fringe entirely.

Colourful feathers are perfect for Easter, but instead of real feathers, you can make your own with Fimo clay. We've used Fimo Leather, which has a soft and elastic leather-like feel when it is thinly rolled out and hardened in the oven. You can either roll out the clay, or you can use Fimo's clay machine for really even results. When you are satisfied with the fringe on the feathers, place them in the oven again to soften them up. Remove the fringe, shape them a little bit and immerse them in cold water. This will help the feathers to retain their nicely curved shape. Then simply add any colour string you like and hang them up in the Easter bouquet!
