Homemade clay is easy to make, inexpensive, and can be used in a variety of crafts and art projects. And there are many recipes available, even gluten-free ones. Since my daughter wasn’t participating and no one else is gluten intolerant, I used wheat flour.
I recently made up a salt, four dough for the kiddos in our Sunday program at church. I used 2 cups flour, ½ cup salt, and 1 cup water. I ran out of white flour so I used up some old wheat pastry flour (that I was afraid to use for baking). It made the crosses look like they were made out of stone. I think it was because of the flecks of wheat in the flour.
Previously when making this salt dough clay, I’ve used food dye to colour it. Gail Bartel (from That Artist Woman) suggests using acrylic paints. So I tried that. I like using the acrylics better than food dye.
- There is a wider range of colours.
- And the paint didn’t stain my hands, counter, or clothes. Yes, I can get that messy!
The clay was successfully used by the preschool to 5th graders to make crosses.
The bead and clay cross instructions and examples from Gail are found here.
We will make these again next year.
- We might make some of them into magnets.
- And I will test to see if these would hold up as a rear view mirror decoration.
