Thanks for the request for da magicks!!! :D
I have a question about sculping custom ponies, I hope it's okay to post them here ;^;

I recently entered the world of custom ponies and I am currently using Super Sculpey, which is bake-able. I sculpted into a pony and now I need to bake it.

Is it REALLY safe to bake ponies? Because they are plastic, and plastic release toxins when heated ind determined temperatures.

is it okay to use a conventional cooking oven? Or does it have to be a special oven that you won't be using for cooking? Because of contamination and everything;;

I've done some sculpting (using Sculpey III) and baked ponies several times at around 125c for a maximum of 20min. Nothing happened other than the pony being a bit wobbly when just out of the oven. As long as you let it cool down and don't touch it before it's cool it shouldn't be any problem. :)
A bit of a late reply, but I find it safe to bake the pony as long as you don't use too high a temperature.

I use premo clay and I bake that at around 100C with the pony in a conventional oven perfectly safely, but I wouldn't go any higher temperature than that.

All I can say is that baking the pony will make its plastic VERY soft for a while, so you'll need to make sure you let your pony cool down fully before trying to move it (or even touch it) otherwise you risk misshaping it.

Place your pony in a glass dish or other oven-safe dish to bake it. Then, after it's baked, leave it to cool in the oven first, and once the oven has cooled, get the dish out the oven and leave it all to air dry. Only once it has cooled fully should you remove the pony from the dish.

Hope this helps!

I wouldn't do it. I don't think it's a good idea. I think if it doesn't melt the pony, the fumes will be bad. I'd say invest in Apoxie Sculpt.
