Hi, I just got myself a toaster oven (Rival brand) and I've also put in a Sculpey oven thermometer to check the temperature. I've got that right at 275 F  and I chucked in a little piece of clay (perhaps smaller than an 1cm x 1cm cube) on a ceramic tile, with an aluminum foil roof over the clay piece. It's been sitting in there for over an hour and it's still a little soft inside. I've put the toaster oven to "Stay On" rather than use the timer.

I'm not sure what's wrong! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi.  When pieces first come out of the oven, they are still a bit soft.  Once cooled, they will have hardened.  Did you test your piece after it had cooled, or while still warm?

Hi there Sandy.

Thanks so much. I've been using a regular oven all this while and I got so used to that that it just slipped my mind that I was supposed to let it cool first. I was being impatient! I slept and woke up the next morning to find the little test piece as hard as a rock.

Thanks for the input!
