How Do You Bake Rose Art Modeling Clay?
Rose Art is a popular arts and craft brand that produces a wide range of material, such as pencils, watercolor paint and modeling clay. Standard clay must be fired in a kiln once complete to hold the shape (this dries out the clay, hardening it). However, modeling clay does not need the extremely high temperatures of the kiln, so it is possible to bake the clay in your home kitchen. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Remove all pots and pans from the oven. The clay gives off smoke that adheres to the pots and pans. Place the modeling clay on a baking sheet and set it in the oven. Place it on the bottom shelf of the oven to give more room overhead. To prevent the clay from sticking to the baking sheet, place parchment paper on top of the baking sheet. Once you are finished, it is safe to use the baking sheet for cooking again, just wash it off with warm water and dish soap. Wait at least 20 minutes and check on the clay. Touch the Rose Art clay to see if it is still soft. Larger, thicke
