Once properly baked, polymer clay is heat resistant to a certain extent and can withstand normal crafting and everyday use. Baking polymer clay triggers a chemical reaction that hardens the material, making it relatively stable under moderate temperatures.
Heat resistance of baked polymer clay:
- Regular Use: Baked polymer clay is heat resistant enough for activities like wearing jewelry, using functional items, or displaying decorative pieces.
- Limited Heat Exposure: While polymer clay can tolerate moderate temperatures, it should not be exposed to open flames, direct heat sources, or extreme heat.
- Precautions: Avoid placing polymer clay items near hot surfaces or subjecting them to excessive heat, as this can lead to distortion or melting.
It’s important to exercise caution and prevent excessive heat exposure to ensure the longevity and quality of your polymer clay creations.
