Cheapy cheap homemade salt paste
This is perfect if you want to do some tiny and no so tiny figures :D

  • Step 1

    First, you'll need:
    *3 cups of wheat fluor
    *1 cup of water
    *1 cup of salt

  • Step 2

    Mix the wheat fluor and the salt. Add the water. And just knead it like 10 minutes. If it's too dry you could add more water, but just a little.

  • Step 3

    Now you got some salt paste and you're ready to do whatever figure you want :D

    Paint your figure. You can use aquarell or acrylic paints.

  • Step 4

    And you just need to bake it. 1 mm of thikness equals 1 hour at 60-70ºC

  • Step 5

    Apply 3 layers of varnish all over the figure. So it will be out of dust and humidity.

  • Step 6

    That's all :D Hope you like it.

My mom made this for us as kids instead of buying play-doh. I'm not sure if it's the same recipe, but it looks similar. She added food coloring and we kept it in an airtight container so we could re-use it.
Ah the memories, thanks!
