Not plastic but if you bake sculpey clay in a microwave the clay pops out in
the
weirdest ways. My son and I did this with some small faces years ago instead
of the
oven just to see if it would work - before it started to burn it popped out
in the
eye and also the back of the head looked exploded. My teenage son thought
it was really cool. Toxic - probably??? Roberta
