Well, I'm a newbie and have been lurking and learning (thanks!) I baked
my first experimental pieces yesterday. Got the convection oven.
Got the oven-temp thingie. Made sure it was at around 270. Used
Fimo. Baked for half an hour--the pieces were thin, about 1/8 inch
or largest pasta machine setting (got that too :-)....Pieces still
came out kind of ***y, like hard leather, and slightly
flexible. Is this how the clay turns out or should it be harder,
like conventional clay? Ummm, what should I do?
