Can anyone tell me if after baking fimo if you can use the Krylon Gold and Silver pens on it - if so do you have to varnish it to stop it coming of or will it just stay on
also when baking fimo should you cover it in the oven to stop the fumes from being in the oven or is it OK just to leave it open
any help please as i'm new to fimo
thanks

don't know about the pens, but you don't need to cover it. I've never noticed any fumes coming off it at all and as a severe asthmatic, I probably would have if there had been any - IYSWIM

You do get fumes from Fimo - I won't use it because of my bird, they're very susceptable to fumes. Best person to ask would be Queen Fimo....or Maddy as she's also known... :wink:

I do a bit of fimo but only ever small pieces and I don't find the fummes particularly noticable. But don't over cook it.

If you are worried make sure the kitchen is well ventilated.

forgive the naiveness but do you mean the pens that you pump the nib and the ink is goes to the tip ? If so , yes they do work on Fimo ....but it smudges and if you varnish them it smears also . It also covers the varnish brush and when dipped back into the varnish it leaves residue ink in the bottle.

As far as fumes go , i suffered from sore throats for ages when i started using fimo, then i realised i was breathing ( as you do :roll: ) when i opened the oven door , now i always hold my breath when i take fimo out of the oven , and an open window helps.

If your oven is too hot , the fimo will slightly darken. Oh and there is no need to cover the fimo.

hope that helps

Our extractor fan must be better than I thought it was as never notice the fumes - admittedly Jess is the one who gets it out of the oven, but even so

Or maybe it's one of the few (very few) things that doesn't trigger me then :o


Sorry for misleading you Pam :oops:

I've never noticed any fumes either, mind you I do try to hold my breath when I open the oven, just in case, and I never have my windows open either.

However, I have read that you are more likely to get fumes if you have the temperature too high, which you can often do without realizing it as a lot of ovens thermometers are incorrect

I think you should just use the Krylon pens on the baked Fimo, not bake the ink as it is very dangerous stuff anyway. It should dry fine on the baked Fimo.
