what happened??!?!!?

these used to be with green leaves...they were about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick and the package (sculpey III) said to cook at 275F for 15 minutes for every 1/4 inch of thickness. there's not a mark for 275F on my toaster oven so i just put it a little past 250F and cooked for 15 minutes.  it is only the second time that i have used the toaster oven. the clay that i baked the first time (fimo) turned out just fine. i guess i need a thermometer in there. gggrrrrr. anyone with any suggestions?
