Thanks so much for all your replies - I'm not quite ready to get stuck into my project yet, I was being very forward thinking in planning it all out right down to the final detail, but when I do, I will keep you up to date!

Sheesh, my lesson for today is, don't post on PCC when I'm tanked on cold medicine.....If in the boiling water (212 F) your thermometer reads 215 F, you need to SUBTRACT 3 degrees from the temperature your thermometer reads to get the actual temperature.

My oven is at least 15 degrees hotter than the readout on the oven says it is - so when the oven readout says it's at 275, it actually is at about 290.  I use Fimo Soft, and its the white darkens a bit at 275, I bake at 265 actual temperature - which is 255 setting on my oven. - Beth

The air tight seal is not going to help with polymer clay as it doesn't have water in it so it doesn't really dry out unless it gets too warm. The bag, though, might keep dust from attaching itself to your clay.
