Salt Dough Recipe and Instructions

Hello everyone, I am attaching a recipe for salt dough to my lessons. Do not feel that you have to do this, I’m just putting it out there as a resource if you’re getting bored and would like to make something 3D. This dough can be used to create ornaments, necklaces, beads, or small sculptures. You can roll it out like cookie dough and use cookie cutters or small cups to make circle shapes (use a straw to poke a hole to hang) . Your parent/guardian would have to be aware that you’re doing it and would definitely have to bake your pieces for you. I DON’T WANT ANY STUDENT TO TURN ON AN OVEN! The pieces can air dry but it takes several days depending on the amount of humidity in the air. Once the pieces are baked/dried, they can be painted and if desired, they could be covered with varnish to make them shiny and last longer. The dough will keep for several days wrapped tightly with plastic wrap and kept in the refrigerator. If you keep it too long it will get moldy and it will crack when you work with it. Again, this is not a requirement, it’s just a resource for you to play with. Please let me know if you have any questions and have fun.
