Disaster of my first sculpture: SuperSculpey (polymer clay)

The last time I touched clay was in kindergarten. This is my first time in many years. I used polymer clay to make a cat. It was hard. My fingerprints were everywhere on the sculpture. I used aluminum foil and wire as a core. During the baking process, my little cat fell. I tried to put it back up. It turned out as in the photo. It fell again and broke. I should take the metal rack out from the oven. I should have done better. Anyway, I will try again. Practice makes perfect.
