We’re going to be making a clay model so you’ll need:

  • 1 cup of salt (273g)
  • 2 cups of flour (370g)
  • 3/4 cup of water (175ml)
  1. Mix the salt and flour in a bowl.
  2. Add water gradually to form a ball.
  3. Knead (pound, roll and pull) until it no longer falls apart.
  4. Do your project and allow it to dry at room temperature for approximately 2 day (more for larger or thinker projects).
  5. Paint.
  6. Store your salt dough in an airtight container as it keeps well for a few days.
