One of my favorite memories in school was sculpting in art class. I absolutely LOVED bringing home my creations to Mom and Dad. And now I LOVE when my daughter brings home hers. I really want to start making our own creations at home and found a great recipe for an easy and affordable salt dough that you can sculpt, bake and paint!
All you need is:
3 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water
Using an electric mixer, beat together the flour, salt and water on medium speed until a ball forms, then remove the dough and knead it until it is smooth.
To bake: heat oven to 275 degrees. Bake sculpture on a foil-lined cookie sheet for two hours (may need to bake more depending on the size of your sculpture). Allow to cool completely before painting.
