Baking time and temperature are critical. The clay should bake evenly throughout and become a hard plastic. Too low a temperature, it’ll crumbles; too high a temperature, and the outside fuses and burns before the inside has cooked through.

Place the modelled object on aluminium foil and let it harden in the oven for a maximum of 20 minutes at a temperature of 130°C. Malaysia Polymer Clay will only be completely hardened when cooled down to room temperature. The correct way to bake polymer clay is to heat up the oven until 130°C first, only then put in the modelled object. This way it will ensure that the clay is cured perfectly. The length of time you bake a piece will be determined by how thick the clay is. Clay object bigger than 5cm may takes a little more time to bake.
