Vid #004: If Fimo Mix Quick Doesn’t Work To Soften Your Clay, This May Be The Reason Why:
Using Fimo Quick Mix and a pasta machine will cure most hard and crumbly clay issues. But if that doesn’t work, it may be that your polymer clay has been partially cured from sitting in direct sun light for too long.
All is not lost though. You can grate or chop the cured clay and add the pieces to fresh clay to make specks of color like those in granite and faux stone. Creating faux surfaces in polymer clay is a very fun thing to do.

The full version of the “Soften Up Hard Clay” preview video shown above, is included in my Polymer Clay Bead Making Fundamentals Course [SEE Video #4 of 39]. Is your polymer clay hard, crumbly and impossible to work with? Then let me show you how to use FIMO Quick Mix for softening up that clay to a consistency that’s easy to work with again. Fimo Mix Quick added in the correct amounts, will restore the plasticizers in most brands of polymer clay. I go into more detail about this important topic in the video.
