A common question for those new to polymer clay is “Can you bake polymer clay more than once?” The answer is YES! There is no reason you can’t bake a piece of clay as many times as you need to. In fact, for complex pieces it’s common to bake parts of the piece separately and then assemble and attach them after baking.
Can you bake polymer clay too long?
Polymer clay needs to be baked for at least 35 minutes to give the clay time to cure. However, baking polymer clay for longer will increase its strength. As long as your oven temperature is correct and your pieces are protected with a tent, you can bake for virtually as long as you like.
