I'd be extremely cautious about exposing varnish to heat. Many are flammable and most will release toxins.

The types of top coats that you can use on polymer clay should be fine to put back into the oven.  I've asked a few skilled crafters about this and they've all told me this is okay.  I frequently under back my polymer clay, paint it, glaze it, then put it back into the oven.  I also find that pieces are more durable and less likely to chip (I make jointed pieces so rubbing is a factor for my work).  I use triple thick and craft matte varnish (in a spray can), and I haven't had any problems with them in the oven.  This is because you should only be using water based sealers on your polymer, nothing with oil in them (which are the ones that are flammable and therefore dangerous to put into your oven).

Ill weave your names into my ribcage; lock your hearts inside my chest.
Regain the passion I once carried; do away with all the rest.
I tore the sickness from your bodies; smashed its head against the bricks.
I made a castle from its bones that you may always dwell in it.
