I'm trying out Fimo clay for the first time, and I made a bunch of things that're awaiting baking.
The only problem is that I think someone may have thrown out the wrapping in passing and I don't know what temperature to bake it at!
Help please?

I know Kato is 275... but that may not be correct for fimo...

If you know at least the brand, try their website. I wouldn't just bake them and hope for the best.

The baking temp for the Eberhard Faber (Fimo) clays is 265 (per quarter inch of thickness).

Actually, their FimoSoft is now in a brand new formulation and I don't know if the temp has changed for that one, but if you haven't bought any FimoSoft recently you'll have the old formulation which is also 265.

There's more info on baking temps for the various brands, and all kinds of info about baking polymer clay on this page, if you want to check it out:

HTH ...and welcome to your virgin voyage!
