Does anyone do crafts with these products? I am going to be making my daughter a few "foods" for her American Girl doll that she will be getting for her Birthday and I was curious which is better for making this type of thing? I have small cookie cutters that I plan on making a few "cookies", fudge and possibly a meal and put them in a picnic basket (I picked up a cute basket for $1 at Michaels).

Any ideas or tips on how to make anything? Thanks!

~I've worked with fimo clay. A couple of things that immediately came to mind were;
-Don't make any of your pieces too thin. Anything thinner than the filling in an oreo cookie will crack and break after cooking.
-Bake at a very low temperature(200-250) and check the cooking pieces often. Some will be done in 6 minutes and others will take 20.
-Use an aluminum/shiny cookie sheet. Coated sheets WILL scorch your pieces.
-Finish pieces with several coats of polyurethane. I have a trinket box I made with fimo over 10 years ago and it still looks great!
Have fun!~
