1/2 cup salt
3/4 cup boiling water
2 cups flour
aluminum foil


Place salt in bowl; pour boiling water over salt and stir. Cool. Add flour all at once and mix well by forming a ball and kneading the dough until it is smooth, soft and workable.

Form your shapes (maybe for a Christmas ornament or your name) and bake at 300F to 350F degrees (depending on the thickness of the ornament) for 1 1/2 to 3 hours.

You can also let it air-dry, but give it at least two to three days before painting it. Spray after paint dries with polyeurethrane to hold in and keep it shiny.
