Baker's Clay - Dough Sculpture

Baker's Clay can be used to sculpt a variety of creative gifts and decorations. The basic recipe and directions are posted below. You might want to print out this recipe before you travel on to the specific project pages.

Baker's Clay Ingredients:
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cup water
Mix ingredients together in a large bowl and knead until smooth. Add food coloring if desired.

Make shapes and bake at 300 degrees until set and golden (1/2 hr to 1 hr). For a more golden appearance, paint with a beaten egg when it is almost done baking and looks dry. You can paint with egg twice or three times for a darker golden color. Don't use the egg on colored dough. For colored dough, paint with shallac or laquer after baking. If cracks appear, patch with some slightly moister dough and continue baking.

Now that you've got the basic instructions, check out these project pages:
