DIY: Mini oranges

I'm pretty sure I've read that our beloved GFC will disappear after
July? But I still see my numbers of follower growing (thank you!
and for myself can follow others as well. What are you up to, Google?

Anyway. 
I've prepared a DIY-project for you guys: mini oranges with Fimo clay, my 
favorite! They also look a bit like tangerines..

Tool: Fimo clay, dotting pens, a toothpick/needle, an oven
1. Make a tiny ball and punch with a dotting pen (not too deep) a hole in the center on both sides. This will be your stems. 
2. As you look at a orange, you can see all these dents and dimples. We are creating that
by using the dotting pens and a toothpick. 
3. I start around the stems first by creating small dots (use toothpick) that goes bigger once it
goes further removed.

4. To create the stem, use a green colored Fimo clay. 
             - Stem: roll with your finger a little snake with thin end. Pile them up together diagonally. 
             It should look like a  star  now c: 
5. Place your green stem on the hole in the center. Bake the your design in an oven at 110°C for 30 minutes. Good luck! 

I prefer Fimo classic over Fimo Soft more because the classic is more manageable.

  7. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
    I think it was a common misconception amongst bloggers that GFC would shut down - Google said only the Reader would go, and that's what happened! But somehow it became a rumour that GFC would also stop!
    Love these oranges, I would never have steady enough hands for these!

    Have a great day,

  13. Those are just super adorable!
    Google Friend Connect didn't go away, it was google reader that shut down, google friend connect now attaches to your google plus account I think. But instead of using reader now you have to use bloglovin.

  18. The last time i worked with fimo (and I looove fimo!) was probably about 7 years ago.. It's really cool what you did with it! Using nail art tools to shape the texture of the tangerine is a great idea. btw it's the first time for me to see nail art tools..
