1. Salt and Flour

Mix 2 cups of flour and 1 cup of salt in a medium-size container.

Once you add water, mix the mixture using a wooden spoon. You have to make a dough out of the mixture, so add water and mix the ingredients until you get a soft dough. You can also use your hands to knead the dough well.

4. Ready!

5. Spread

Turn the dough onto a flat surface (such as a chopping board) and knead it with your hands until smooth.

6. Creations

Once you complete the kneading step, start creating your creations from salt dough. You can either use molds or create things with your hands.

Once done, place the creations in the oven at 180C. The thickness of the salt dough regulates the amount of time you should set. 

7. Color

Now that your salt dough creations are hard, you can paint them. Choose acrylic paint to do this step.

  • Paint the creations with acrylic paint and use varnish spray to seal the paint.
