Need help with baking clay

Posted by mangomoon (My Page) on

To make a long story short, I had to have one of my dogs' put to sleep and cremated. The cremation service sent me an un-baked clay medallion with my dog's name on it and his paw print. This was a total surprise to me! Anyway it came with instructions. It is un-baked and I do not know what type of clay it is, but it says to bake in conventional or toaster oven at 275 degrees on a GLASS baking dish. First of all I have never seen a glass dish for use with a toaster oven. I do have Pyrex but they will not fit into my toaster oven and my Pyrex pie plate is the only one almost flat enough to put in a conventional oven with the clay piece in the center. I was planning on using the toaster oven for the purpose of convenience, but the flat Pyrex glass pieces I have seen at Wal-Mart say not to use in toaster ovens. The clay instructions also state not to use metal.

Any suggestions for me?

Wow, can't believe no one has answered your harmless question! I hope by now you've figured out to handle this but in case you haven't, you can use a flat ceramic tile.

This is my first time checking out this forum BTW, I'm just learning polymer clay myself and am addicted already, can't believe the low traffic on here.

I use tiles also. I put my little creations on index cards, and place them on a tile, and into the oven they go.
