I just received a large brick of this product and wanted somewhere to vent my frustration so here goes.

I went online to buy 350g (12.34 oz) of what I thought was yellow polymer clay. When I received it I was shocked and thought maybe it was because I am colourblind (I sometimes have difficulty in diffrentiating between blue and green, especially when they are mixed but then apparently many people have this problem) so I asked somebody else and it was confirmed that Staedtler Fimo Classic 8001-1 is NOT yellow, but indeed lime green! I will add that is also like a flourescent colour and someone on the internet has called it psychedelic lime green!

Many websites are also placing the wrong colour photo when selling this product which will mislead you further as they probably dont know better themselves.

For those who want the right kind of yellow, you want Staedtler Fimo Soft Lemon (Code -10).

So Staedtler, if you are reading this, SORT IT OUT and stop misleading your customers!! And if you agree, leave a comment to vent your rage!

They should surely put on correct names. I agree it gets too frustrating specially if you want it for a particular project.

You most definitely need to let the company you purchased from know that the colors are wrong. Thanks for sharing.
