Creating a Fimo Nemo

I had heard from the children of my friends about this new Disney movie called ‘Finding Dory’. I listened to them and said, “Is it not called ‘Finding Nemo’”?  This seemed to silence them momentarily, until one of the children, piped up with ‘No, it isn’t, they’ve already found him!”. That shows you how much I know about movie trends.

Seemingly the film ‘Finding Dory’ was released in America on June 8, 2016 and has subsequently been viewed in the United Kingdom too. I must admit I haven’t seen it, but I did enjoy the first film ‘Finding Nemo’ and with this in mind, I created some small Fimo characters based on the ocean, with one of them being a Fimo Nemo. These Fimo creations were created for a class I was teaching, with the students and the members of staff all taking part. I must admit that the work that they produced was second-to-none and I now have a fantastic purple and green turtle, made by Lucie, in my bathroom 🙂

I hadn’t used Fimo since I was a student (quite a few years ago now), so using this coloured clay-like material was rather like starting anew. I didn’t have a great deal of time to spend on these creations, but tried to do my best in what little time I had. I had very little Fimo too, so the finished objects are rather small and a trifle delicate. I even managed to produce a crab with a picture clip, which wasn’t difficult but was fun to do.

I hope you like my Fimo Nemo (which is a good rhyming name) or clowfish, if you prefer, and the other creations.  Hopefully if I have time this month (what with teaching, gardening and general home improvements), I might just see if I can go ‘Finding Dory’ too.
