Do You Know How To Prevent Polymer Clay From Burning?
Lately I’ve noticed a lot of mis-information on other sites, about how to bake polymer clay beads and pendants. Now in most cases, it really isn’t the fault of the site owner, because they are simply passing on information from someone else, who they believe to be correct. But unfortunately, this can end up playing out like that “pass-it-on” word game where the message can get very twisted and turned along the way.
As well, many crafters do the same things they would do for baking cookies, when they are baking their polymer clay. This often leads to unexpected and disappointing results.
For example, it is often suggested that polymer clay gets burnt from being left in the oven too long. But in reality, burning polymer clay is caused when the temperature goes too high.
This burning clay problem can be easily solved by using an oven thermometer to make sure the temperature stays between 265F and 275F for most clay brands.
