Baker's Clay

  • 3 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 c. salt
  • 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 c. water

Mix the 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 shellac or lacquer after baking. If cracks appear, patch with some slightly moister dough and continue baking.

  • Preparation Time: 1-2 hours
