FIMO leather‑effect is an oven-hardening modelling clay that can be shaped and worked in the same way as FIMO soft. After hardening it looks and feels similar to leather, and you can feel the effect even when you're kneading it. Unlike other oven-hardening types of FIMO, FIMO leather‑effect is hardened for 30 minutes at 130° C / 266° F. After hardening, thinly-rolled sheets are highly flexible, and can be bent, cut with scissors, punched or sewn, for example. This modelling clay is ideal for making unique jewellery pieces such as earrings, necklaces or bracelets. It also makes wonderful leather effect decorations for your home.

FIMO leather-effect (and FIMO in general) is what is known as self adhesive, i.e. when two pieces of FIMO are placed on top of each other, they will stick together. Pressing and smoothing the clay will strengthen the bonding. So you can lay two colours on top of each other, for instance, creating different colours on the front and back. FIMO will also stick to glasses and tins, making them easy to cover. (Individual FIMO decorations (e.g. little hearts, etc.) applied to items after hardening will not stick permanently).

The FIMO leather-effect look is visible on both sides after hardening. This is particularly useful if you are creating earrings, handbag charms, etc.
FIMO leather-effect is especially flexible and bendable after hardening. When FIMO leather-effect is rolled out thin, it can be punched, sewn (by hand or with a sewing machine) and cut into shapes with scissors.
