Paper Support

Polymer clay cures at a fairly low temperature: 250-300 degrees Fahrenheit depending on the brand. Since paper doesn't burn until 451 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not burn when baked with polymer clay.
STEP 1
Create a support using cardstock or ball up some tissue paper to place under the clay.
STEP 2
Place the clay onto the paper support and bake according to manufacturer's instructions.

Neckform and Heat Tool

STEP 1
To create a larger polymer clay necklace piece, a neckform may not fit into a craft oven. Use a combination of the heat safe neckform and heat tool to semi-cure the clay.

Let the clay cool.
STEP 2
Place the semi-cured piece into the craft oven with tissue paper (or other paper support) underneath as support and finish curing according to manufacturer's instructions.
