Bummer it didn't work out!  Thanks though for going to the effort, it sure looked good at first.  Actually, that first pic

you posted I thought why would this guy be shoving an orange over a piece of pvc?  :)

I might as well bake it and see what happens.

While the Fimo is in the oven. A Coke bottle top actually seems really good.

One option is to use a PVC pipe that is longer, cut it half long ways before using it as a mold. Prior to oven baking use a heat gun to make it easier to deform the PVC and pull out. It will also be a good starting process curing your orange :P LGD

Is it possible to drill it out to the diameter you want?

OK, try this: take your pipe and wrap paper around it about 1 and 1/4 turns. Then when you are done molding slide the pipe out. Would that work?

You guys are great. I did bake it. It did go on the pipe. It's not bad. I think I can sand and shape it more. It's really only limited by the person forming it. ;) Test video coming up!
