Salt Dough


Please note: you may find other variations on this simple recipe. Anyway this is the basic and you may have to experiment until you get exactly what you want.

You need
4 cups flour
1 cup fine salt
1 - 2 cups hot water
2 teaspoons vegetable oil

1. Mix the salt and flour together, adding  gradually the water and the oil until the dough becomes elastic.  Add more flour or water until your dough is good.

2. Knead the dough until it’s a good consistency.

3. Form your dough with rolling pins, cups, bowls, cookie cutters, plastic utensils, or just use your fantasy!

4. It is possibleto make coloured dough! Or you can color it later.  If you want to do it now, just add food coloring, powdered drink mix, or paint into the water before adding. 

5. Drying. Let your items dry on the heather and/or bake them at 200 degrees, but put them in a cold oven. Baking times will vary depending on the size and thickness of the object, but make sure that all of it is hard. If the dough starts to darken before cooking is complete, cover with aluminum foil or baking paper. 

It is possible to store your salt dough in a sealed container in the refrigerator, but only for a couple of days.
