dunno about ur question but i never heared anythin good about fimo and didnt like it myself. id suggest to switch to super sculpy wich is basicaly the same just a lot smoother.
u can order it from a shop in germany i ll check on more details tomorrow if u like.

Do most of the artists on this board recomend sculpy?
I am in the US and I am just curious , is it difficult to find polymer clay where you are? ~L

www.kaupo.de in germany stocks Super Sculpey and anything you might need for moulding and casting as well as they stock all Smooth-On products.
The combination of prices and shipping costs (at least to Sweden) made them the best I managed to find inside EU.
They do however not take payment by creditcards so I recommend that you check with your bank so that there are no unexpected transfer costs from your country to Germany (there was none from Sweden).
If you check out the pricelist then don't forget to add 16% German VAT.
The site is in German only but if you just manage to find the contact form they will replay in English if you ask them to.
If anyone knows about anyone with better prices then please IM me (when comparing prices add VAT first as VAT may differ between countries).

This is a good place to get sculpey, and Im sure they will mail overseas.
I would say that sculpey is great for detail and ease of working, but its not easy to colour(it starts out pink) and wouldnt be strong enough to make jewlery from, like you could with Fimo.
The silver clay looks interesting, has anyone here used it?

I read the site and they mail to europe(sorry not USA). They stock all the sculpey range PLUS fimo! A one stop resource. Also check out http://www.tiranti.co.uk/
They supply tools and resins of all kinds.
