After the bake!
Here it is after the bake. Its now more translucent but has darkened and breaks quite easily.
Even though it breaks quite easily with the shape i made it would still be fine for cheese and a variety of other miniatures.
The clay is beautiful to work with, doesn't stick to your fingers, is resisitant to finger prints while working it it, but takes on identations and markings better than fimo. I would imagine its better for detailed work such as the mandrakes i've made recently, and so going to use it to make the faces on some cauldrons i have on the go at the moment. I also had a little play with it to see how it loses its shape when you're working with it. For instance if i was making leaves wit fimo theleaves can distort and lose their shape while working and moveing them, but this clay didnt.
From the whole colour range i do prefer the colours because they look more natural and have a lovely subtle tone to them against the bright and vibrant fimo colour range.
I would also imagine its great for items such as candles like my friend Debbie is making at the moment so shall give these a o when i have finished my weeks work and hopefully post next week.
Overall a nice product to work with, that retains its shapes and indentations to a high standard, not sticky and probably the best replacement for translucent fimo 00 that i have tried since they removed this product.
