Pimp Your Crochet Hook!

I thought my "bare" crochet hooks could handle a bit more grip and color. But monochrome was a bit too boring for me now. The pretty color swirl of a marble effect makes all the difference.

While you had to knead the "old" polymer clay quite long, until it was nice and smooth to use it, you can start mixing and shaping the new "soft" consistency (which the other varieties have as well).

Things you will need:

  1. At first I rolled strings of different thickness out of 4 colors with my hands and cut them into pieces.
  2. Then put them piece by piece together wildly to form a ball.
  3. Formed again into a finger thick roll and rolled further until it had a nice even shape.
  4. Then I cut the roll lengthwise, put the crochet needle between the two halves, and carefully re-connected with a light push.
  5. Allow the polymer clay needles to set in the oven at 110 °C for about 30 minutes.
  6. After hardening, small bumps and fingerprints in the material can be easily repaired by very fine sandpaper.
  7. Clean the hooks and let them dry completely, then spray with gloss paint for a shiny effect.

If you have something left over from the marbled mix like me, you will be delighted with the possibility of the "bead-roller" for Fimo. Like me.

With the enclosed scoop for the right amount, by simply pushing back and forth the lid, three different pearl shapes can be produced. Just pierce a hole in the middle of the balls carefully and you have some very beautiful beads for a bracelet in Caribbean summer colors.
