I found these at Michael's in the cake decorating department. Duff Goldman developed these for Fondant for cakes. He is the Ace of Cakes show that was on last year. There are many other patterns available, but these are just right for miniature making. The bricks are 1/2 x 1/4 on each and the flooring is 2 inches x1/4" each board. The rock and cobblestones are just the right size for walkways.
Now I know we don't use fondant in miniatures, but Fimo is just like fondant in texture. Roll thin and mold into molds. After handling the clay gets soft. Put into the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to retain the shape and pop out of mold onto a metal or parchment paper pan. Follow directions on baking temperature. Do not use pans that you use to cook with. A small baking sheet just for Fimo baking should be used. When baked we have the start of any garden or room flooring. Fimo can be painted with any acrylic paint just like plastic. It can be cut after baking into desire shapes and sizes.
