Vid #035: Baking Polymer Clay – Keep Your Oven Clean and Your Beads Tented:
Dirty ovens can often yellow your polymer clay, especially with the lighter colors.
To help prevent this from happening, you can tent the beads or bead rack with parchment paper during the oven baking process. Tinfoil works for tenting your beads and pendants as well.
Just don’t let the parchment paper or tin foil touch the polymer clay pieces in the oven because the beads will blemish.
