This stuff is great! we had no money till next weekend...so i looked in my daughters craft books. i found DIY play dough and decided to give it a shot! Me and my boyfriend spent a weekend making little things like beads, flowers, skulls, and small wall hangings.
1. First get a BIG bowl!
2. Measure out flour and salt.
3. Add water, but only about a 1/4 of a cup at a time till desired consistency. Kneading constantly...this could take up to 10min.
so you should have dough that looks like this. also you have the option to add food coloring.
Set your oven for 200 degrees. leave them in for 2-4 hours. if they start to brown make sure to cover w/foil or take them out!
if you don't want to use your oven you can leave out your creations to air dry. depending on the size, this could take 2 hours to 2-3 days.
So once your let your creations cool and they are completely dry, they are hard as a rock! you can paint them, i used acrylics, watercolors, and if you want a gloss finish, just apply a coat of Mod-podge!
