Salt dough is so versatile you can use it in lots of craft projects, kids love to make it & create with it. I like making batches up for the kids so they can use it in lots of ways it’s great for creating jewellery, making magnets, keepsakes, model making & the list goes on. You can paint, glitter, decorate & varnish salt dough just like clay, you can also add food colouring & make it into batches which you can keep in a sealed container/bag in the fridge.
The recipe is simple all you need is plain flour, salt & water. The recipe below will make quite a large batch but you can make it smaller just keep to the same ratio.
Flour 12 oz
salt 6 oz
water 6 fl oz
Heart shaped pastry cutters
PVA glue, paintbrushes
once you have completed your salt dough creations you can either leave them to air dry over a few days or pop them in the oven on gas mark 3 this can take around 1.5 – 2 hours. They will need to be cooled before you paint & decorate them.
