You don't know Heju yet? The blog "jack of all trades" as they themselves say of Hélène Pinaud and Julien Schwartzmann, both architects in Paris, always tending to push the limits of architecture by going to design, photography or scenography. It is today with pleasure that we welcome to their universe, a mixture of Japanese and Scandinavian influences, the time of a tutorial: how to make candlesticks that look like granite and marble with the latest news: 739837 Fimo clay ? duration : about 30min Cost : around 10 €


You will need: - Fimo dough - Hélène and Julien found theirs on the La Petite Épicerie website - 3 round cookie cutters - a rolling pin - news: 739781 cutter - glue


1. Soften the news: 739837 Fimo paste which tends to be a little hard when it comes out of the packaging. Spread it out with the rolling pin until you have a thickness of 1 cm. Then cut circles out of the dough using cookie cutters. Do not hesitate to vary the thicknesses and the size of the rounds, for more fantasy - and aesthetics! In some of the circles, make a hole in the center to accommodate the future candle.
2. To create the textures, two techniques are available to you: if you want a granite effect, crumble small pieces of news: 739837 Fimo paste on your round. Distribute the small pieces well then pass your rolling pin very lightly over them to have a smooth surface. If you want to get a marble effect, just mix balls of different colors. The more you knead the dough, the more your two colors will mix and the marble effect will be light.

3. Once you have enough circles, place them in the oven according to the directions on the package. When your rounds have cooled down well, test the compositions and stick the ones that you like the most (remembering to place the round with the hole at the top to accommodate the candle).


And here you are, you have superb candlesticks that you would swear in granite and marble that all you have to do is dispose in your house!
