Homemade Clay Ornaments


Using flour for art dough has never proven successful for me, so I was on the hunt for a clean, easy dough to make ornaments, without the need for flour.
'Better than salt dough' popped up.

It's a soft, pliable, stark white mixture that fit the bill perfectly, calling only for baking soda and cornstarch with a little water. We opted to speed the drying process with some low oven temperatures, but it claims itself an air-drying clay as well.


Both Ms. O and C can spend a good chunk of time experimenting with both edible and non-edible doughs.
They were even more thrilled to sit down to real acrylic paints to complete their work!
