Well, here is the complete detail of this day without further delay:

On the occasion of the release of the new FIMO® leather effect, and new colors of FIMO® liquid, we decided to organize a big event to present these new products to our demonstrators stores but also to youtubers with whom we work It was also an opportunity to transcribe the values ​​of Graine Creative, and to be together all around a 100% creative day! The day was organized around 3 workshops, two creative workshops and a brainstorming workshop.

Once all 50 guests arrived, we gathered around Delphine Roth, the CEO of the company Graine Créative who gave us an interesting and fun speech at the same time! The naturalness and simplicity of Delphine who told amusing anecdotes pleased our guests a lot.

It was after Delphine’s speech that each of the three groups went to her first workshop. There were in all 3 workshops, during this day, return on each of them:

The FIMO® leather effect workshop

This workshop was led by Cloé Mimault, from our R & D team.

During this workshop, we were able to discover the main characteristics of this new dough, but also its colors! We then made a fox purse with our beautiful new template and a custom keychain. The atmosphere was good child, we felt that everyone was excited to test this new dough! The first impressions were heard very quickly: “it’s great the dough is super malleable”, “we already feel the leather look is pretty bluffing”, “the colors are great, there’s something for everyone “.

First creation : Fox purse

Here, after 30 minutes cooking at 130 ° C is the result, an adorable fox wallet with a bluffing leather effect!

Second creation : Custom Keychain

At first, we each selected the colors of FIMO® leather effect that we wanted. We then passed our “background” color in the dough machine for smooth and homogeneous rendering. We were then able to form patterns (abstract or not) on our bottom strip, which we later flattened with a roller.

And then direction the oven, always for 30 minutes!

And tadaaaah! Beautiful keyrings ready to decorate our handbags or keys

L’atelier FIMO® liquid

This workshop was animated by the talented Karine Barrera aka « Akak bijoux » for the great pleasure of all. A set of jewels, necklace + pair of earrings was proposed to the realization. 

The technique used during this workshop was the “sutton slice”. So what is the Sutton slice? “You say, this technique is to make pretty decorations / patterns in relief with a very soft rubber texture plate. After cutting into the paste FIMO® leather the desired shape is to take a texture plate and fill the chosen pattern with liquid FIMO®, then remove the excess with a blade and then perfect with a pick or a toothpick. The texture plate is then heated by means of a heat-gun, we now apply our FIMO® leather shape against the pattern on the texture plate using a roller. When the pattern transferred correctly on the basic form, we place his or her jewelery preparations and we place it all in the oven always 30 minutes at 130 °.

And here we go, we get a beautiful effect of relief and material on a pretty jewelry set.

The brainstorming workshop

This third workshop was animated this time by Mireia Salazar alias “Les ateliers de Mireia” and Marie-July LAC, our marketing manager. It was a workshop adapted to both typologies of guests. For the youtubers, the workshop allowed to discuss around the trends, evolutions of the FIMO®. Then, in a group like a brainstorming, they had to cut into magazines elements that made them think of the world of FIMO®. This activity allowed us to exchange all together, to give everyone ideas of content, ideas for new products,
the expectations of users around the brand.

Finally, for the group of demonstrators, the activity was similar, but with ideas turned to the workshops in store. They were able to share good practices, we were able to give them advice such as how to prepare their workshop, how to take pretty pictures for their social networks etc.

This workshop was much appreciated by all guests, it allowed us to get closer to them, because we often work together, but we rarely have the opportunity to see us.

Thus ended the day, each guest was given a bag of goodies to thank him for his participation, and took the way back. This day was very rewarding, the atmosphere and smiles were at the appointment!
