It is air dry clay so no need to bake, but if you really want, then you can use a small oven kept at home.

Hi, 

Fevicryl Shilpkar is an epoxy clay and would not work well with plastic. We can use Shilpkar on wood, mdf, painted glass bottles, terracotta and paper board. 
The surface has to be slightly permeable for Shilpkar to work best.

Hello Lakshmi, Shilpkar can be attached on any surface using little bit of fevicol Mr with it. It can be used on canvas boards,like Tanjore painting base work,on ply wood,on glass sheet....etc.
