Stroke 2012 - 2

"Fimo is a name for a brand of polymer clay made by German company Staedtler. It can be sculpted in ways similar to other modeling materials such as play-doughOnce shaped, Fimo is baked in a standard or toaster oven for about 30 minutes at 110°C to harden it." 

So says Wiki of this material found in many a kindergarten to encourage the kiddies to be creative in three dimansions.

But Josephine Kaiser's use of Fimo is perhaps more adult. Her figures... about 30 centimetres tall... are celebrations of the fullness of the female form.
The Munich sculptress is unlikely to be hired by Mattel in the immediate future!
