Into the 35 minutes baking cracking and spliting appears on the surface of the PC ball. The styrofoam ball becomes a pumpkin shape and anchored onto the base of the PC ball when compressing. The cause of the crack and split was due to the attachment of the PC onto the styrofoam ball surface. When the styrofoam compressed, it soften and fused with the PC. The compressing inward movement causes tension between the clay and styrofoam, cracking the PC surface during the softening to hardening stage when baking polymer clay in the convection oven.
