Plumbob Keyring by Alistu Plumbob Keyring by Alistu
Why is there no fanart section for models or vice versa?

This is a keyring of a plumbob from the Sims series of games. It's the diamond thing that spins above their heads.

Took me about and hour and a half to make from Fimo and is 5.5cm tall, not including the chain. I varnished it and there is also glitter in the Fimo for extra sparkle.

Corners are not easy to create in a soft material. >.<

I bet that would look pretty neat! I remember I had a custom content necklace for TS2 that had a plumbob on it.
Thanks for the favourite.

Yeah, this was my first attempt with corners and they actually turned out softer than I would have liked. It's easier to make them look sharper when the object you are working on has a flat back, like my Sims logo phone charm> fav.me/d5ecxfx
That picture doesn't really show it off very well but the plumbob has got angled faces. Instead of trying to mold the shape I carved the angles out with a stanley knife blade from a rectangular piece of FIMO.

FIMO Soft actually. Classic would be a better idea for this sort of thing though. I just had lots of green in Soft at the time so couldn't see the sense in buying more.

It depends on what you want to create. It's much better than Classic for being able to work with it pretty much straight out of the packet but if you are working with fine details it can get squashed easily.
I still find it much better than the Sculpey I have tried in the past.
