brainstorming a controlled temp kiln for polymer clays? Answered
I am making some highly detailed prototypes, and Im using polymer clay for the details. I've been baking them in my kitchen oven, but it's starting to get hot with summer coming on... I want to limit the heat production in my house!
I have an old toaster oven, but it's too small for my items.
I was thinking of taking it apart, and using the heating elements and temp controls in something a little bit larger. I'm wondering what the community thinks about that?
My temperature needs to be 275° for fifteen minutes at a time. Some temp fluctuation is okay.
I'm thinking 14 inches cubed would be plenty of room for my largest pieces. somewhere I noticed someone using cement board as an insulating wall, I was thinking a cube made of that with a hinged side.
Does anyone have other ideas for me? TTY
