You will need:
- 1 cup salt
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup luke warm water
- In a large bowl mix the salt and flour.
- Gradually stir in the water. Mix well until it forms a doughy consistency.
- With your hands, form a ball with your dough and kneed it for at least 5 minutes. The longer you kneed your dough the smoother it will be.
You can let your salt dough creations air dry, however salt dough can also be dried in the oven. Bake at 200c until your creation is dry.
The amount of time needed to bake your creations depends on size and thickness; thin flat ornaments may only take 45-60 minutes, thicker creations can take 2-3 hours or more.
