When you say to use a brush and baby oil to get rid of lines and finger prints, is that before or after you cook the clay? I've never liked the finger prints in my polymer clay stuff, but didn't know how to get rid of them.

Also, when you bake the clay for an hour, is it more brittle (crumbly)? I've forgotten to set a timer before and ended up with crumbly clay, but that was at regular temperatures.

Cool turkey, by the way!

Great questions! Use the brush and the baby oil before you bake. As for the time, it won't get more crumbly, but make sure it's 10 degrees cooler than the temp says on the box. Another way to get a really hard bake is to use the directions on the box but do not remove the clay until the oven is back down to room temp.

I recently over cooked clay, boy oh boy is that a mess! I tend to use a little toaster oven vs a full oven, which is fine but when you goof up the temps things go very bad. LOL I am working on an instructable on how to fix that issue. :)

Hope that helps, let me know if you have any more questions.
