Manufacturer's Instructions for FIMO Clay

Modelling and hardening
Model and form FIMO. You can use modelling tools, for example, to create and work out small details. Place the modelled object on aluminium foil or a glass plate and let it harden in the oven for a maximum of 30 minutes at a temperature of 110°C/230°F. FIMO will only be completely hardened when cooled down to room temperature. Use epoxy glue to repair broken parts as well as to connect FIMO with metal parts. Do not expose to temperatures exceeding 110°C/230°F.
Store FIMO covered with aluminium foil or in cling film (PE) at room temperature. FIMO must not come in contact with polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride or Styrofoam.
