It is because you need to use the oven and you need to use the stove element, and you might leave the stove element on and burn down the house.
Why do the pendants get coated in “clear” nail polish instead of “coloured” nail polish?
Pendants get coated in clear nail polish instead of coloured nail polish because when you use clear nail polish you can see what you have designed and that way you can still see your colour.
