  • Step 1

    get ingredients: (im a newbie and couldn't figure out how to make the "you will need" button work)
    -2 cups flour
    -half cup of salt
    -about .75 of a cup of water
    -food coloring (optional-but i didnt use it)

  • Step 2

    Mix the flour and the salt in a separate bowl

  • Step 3

    Add water in the bowl and mix until it feels squishy like dough

  • Step 4

    knead the "dough" you made for about 15 minutes...or keep kneading it until it feels flexible enough so you can bend it without it falling to pieces/ripping.

  • Step 5

    shape the beads. I made some pendants, regular round beads, and any other shape you want!

  • Step 6

    Make a hole in the bead. Make sure you make the holes somewhat big-they shrink when they bake. Trust me, i learned the hard way. (If they do close up after baking use a small drill to make the holes better. My dad helped me :)

  • Step 7

    Bake your beads in the oven at 250 degrees (F) for 2-3 hours-mine took 3 hours. Check them regularly to make sure that they dont burn when they get close to 3 hrs.

  • Step 8

    Take them out of the oven and let them cool down.

  • Step 9

    paint/decorate beads. I used acrylic paint and to make them shiny i used clear nail polish! haha. The paint should dry fairly quick but just to make sure, you should wait about and hour or two before using them.

  • Step 10
