It still created marks Don't think that worked! Also, as of today, it should be day 5 or 6 of being dried. No difference, still scratches.
Well, 200 F for 5 minutes is a shorter time and lower temp than usually used but it's possible that Sarajane's page on it was written long ago and never updated? You could at least try 225-250 for 10-15 min if you are using an oven thermometer.
Otherwise, I don't know what's going on. I suppose it's possible that the shrink plastic, or something you used on top of it, was not water-based so is reacting with the plastics or not itself drying. I know mostly about using it on polymer clay or on some of the mica or real-metal powders and other things we sometimes use on polymer clay.
You mentioned baking wax covered polymer clay, can you also bake resin? I have a bunch of items that i've waxed but wanted to seal it in so to speak. Can you bake that too? sandracb
, I'm not sure which thing you're referring to by "wax." I don't remember saying that actual waxes could be heated on baked clay, though those aren't used that frequently on polymer clay. When they are, I suppose that the heating would just melt them a bit and make them smoother, but waxes will never be glossy
clear finishes. Let me know where you saw that so I can be reminded, and see just what I was talking about.
As for "baking" resin, that usually isn't advisable because too much heat will yellow most clear resins (UV light will do the same). (They can be coated with a UV resistant polyurethane though.)
The "wax" you used on the resin was part of buffing it, or what?
