The setup:
I've got some small dino feet I want to bake enclosed in a home oven.
I used same oven for bending some plexiglass and it was spot on at 160deg.
I ran a sample string (1/4"x1") and even after being baked 4 times for a total of 1 1/2 hrs (275deg first 3 times, the last time 300deg cut back to 275 after 10min -45min total)
Is this what to expect?
The little piece still takes a nail impression and is bendy.
Again this is BakeShop and a small piece-I expected it to be Hard after the first 20min bake.

I read this quote from DianeB:
Bake Shop (under the Polyform/Sculpey brand)
and Craft Smart (same clay, but under the Michael's brand name)
...cheaper than other polymer clays
...the manufacturer says it "was designed for casual crafters and may not be as effective as more advanced polymer clays for highly detailed & intricate projects"
...12-15 colors depending on brand (no dark colors except black, no deep/saturated except yellow, no translucent or metallic)
...texture (some comments from testers): ...very very soft... like PlayDoh, but stickier...cross between Sculpey III and Sculpey's Ultralight...gets fingerprints easily
...strength: looks like it's less brittle than Sculpey but not as strong as the others (when thin)
