The Recipe: Homemade Clay Dough
What you need:
1 cup flour + 1 tsp flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
Mix 1 cup flour and salt together, then slowly add the water, stirring as you go.
After I stirred it a few times and it started to mush together (like my technical terms?), I dumped it all out on the counter and kneaded it for about 5 minutes (which was hard because Sweet P was yelling PayDoh! PayDoh! asking me for it). It was a little sticky so I added about 1 tsp of flour.
Roll out and cut out shapes, smush for awhile or sculpt!
You can leave your shapes to dry for 48 hours, but we baked ours at 300 degrees for 30 minutes.
We painted them with tempura paint, although I'm sure acrylic works better (it just doesn't wash out!).
