Other people are making all sorts of complex designs using polymer clay formed into canes and then cut to give intricately patterned effects. They are very clever. See Polymer Clay Daily for some examples of why Fimo is not only used for making animal fridge magnets.

Their curved shape was formed on a greased lightbulb, a piece of equipment that appeals to my inner Sid James.
