How To Make Salt Dough !!

Salt dough crafts is a great way to model favorite fun characters, Easter favorites, Christmas decorations or even ornaments and handmade gifts.
It's also a great kids craft as a modeling dough, similar to playdough, but the kids can make this themselves and only need adult help or supervision on the cooking|drying stage and final varnish sealing stage.

Salt Dough can be colored with food coloring, natural things such as cocoa powder, paprika, saffron (although very expensive) or acrylic paint.
Or, Salt Dough can be painted once dry with poster paints, acrylic or even watercolor paints.

Salt Dough Recipe for Modeling Craft Ideas

. 2 level cups of normal plain flour
. 1 level cup of fine cooking salt
. 3/4 cup of water

Not Essential Some dough crafters add wallpaper paste or a little pva or elmers glue into their mix experiment with your own recipes

My Personal Preference Is NOT to add anything else - you really don't need to. Leaving it natural works perfectly fine, why mess with perfection :-)
