For detailed modeling compound instructions, please read the following articles in "Mary's Menus":
Knead white Fimo until soft. Break off a bit and roll into ball about a 1/4 inch in diameter. Press gently into potato shape. Poke "eyes" with a toothpick. Make as many as you need to fill the pot. Bake at 250 degrees for 10 minutes. When cool, coat with brown craypa or chalk. Place potatoes in pot.
Pour small amount of casting resin into a paper cup. Add needed drops of catalyst and stir thoroughly with stirring stick (usual formula is 10 drops catalyst to 1 ounce of resin). Carefully pour catalyzed mixture into pot over potatoes. Let stand undisturbed for at least two hours.
Fimo, resin, supplies and "empties" are available at miniatures and hobby/craft stores.
