Custom Flashdrive shell Question

I've got a couple flash drives with broken cases, but the drive itself still works. I was wondering if anyone happens to know if the drive would survive temperatures high enough to harden modeling clay.  This would involve about an hour at 300 degrees Farenheit in an oven for hardening.

Personally, I wouldn't risk it (I'd be afraid of melting solder). I would try an air-drying clay I stead, or a material with a much lower processing temperature, such as polymorph (60C) or Sugru (room temp).

I might need to get some polymorph then.
Wait - I've found that at least two people have used polymer clay and baked the pendrive successfully. [click here] and [click here]
