The short answer is that true modeling clayisnever baked--it will only melt if heated.Earthenclays (pottery clay, ceramic clay, etc)areall water-based. They will dry in the air, but to beverystrong they must then be heated in a high-temperaturekiln("fired").

Air-dry clays all“dry”to harden because they'rewater-based, where most all other“clays”are oil-based and can'ttechnically “dry”because there's nowater in them to evaporate out andcausehardening.
