Instead of buying pre-sliced fimo, it is much cheaper to buy a big bundle of fimo canes and chop them yourself. I got mine from this seller, for a very reasonable £3.55 for 100 including postage. As they are coming from Hong Kong they take a couple of weeks to come, but thats no real biggie considering the bargain. As I am a geek, I bought a storage jar with different layers and divided the canes up according to type.
First up, animals. There are little Hello Kitty lookalikes (which I love), bunnies, chicks (ideal for easter) and are they pandas?
Lastly, butterflies and flowers, always pretty!
You also get this slightly scary looking blade with the bundle to chop up the canes. It can be a bit tricky getting the slices thin enough, but practice makes perfect. Obviously you need to be really careful with this, as you ain't going to have nice nail art with no fingers left!
Ordering bundles of canes can be a bit of a gamble, as the pics on ebay are only an example, and you get a random selection. So if you want something in particular you are probably better ordering the actual ones you want, which does work out a bit pricier, but still not much.
Have you tried fimo slices?
