My daughter tried polymer clay for the first time today.  She made accessories for her dolls. I pulled the tiny things out of the oven and they turned out great.  I left the thicker items in to bake a little longer.  Somehow the oven got turned up to broil and this is what happened.  Cry  Cry

Oh dear, that's so sad when that happens, I've certainly done that myself. Now I use a dedicated toaster oven with a timer that dings and also always tent with foil to protect it from singing but nothing really prevents burning to a crisp if it's too high. What were they going to be? My kids love poly-clay minis, you really can make anything at all.

She was able to recreate the pieces.  They were baby dolls for her Barbies.  The smoke alarm didnt go off because the smoke only billowed our when I opened the oven door.  I quickly opened the kitchen door to get the smoke outside.  It was a good first lesson in polyclay.  My nine year old son is excited to try his hand at this stuff too.  Im looking forward to the things they create.

I'm glad she was able to remake! I think it isn't supposed to get baked in an oven that food gets made in though Sad. I found a toaster oven at the thrift store that I only use for clay & shrinky dinks. I put it out on the porch, that stuff's smelly even when it's not burning up, haha.
