Salt Dough Project Suggestions and Tips:

  • You can store prepared salt dough in a sealed container in the refrigerator for a day or two before using.
  • Add color to the dough by mixing food coloring or paint into the water before adding it to the flour/salt mix. Alternatively, you can paint the finished baked dough with acrylic paint.
  • Painted objects should be sealed on all sides with polyurethane spray or clear varnish to make them lasting gifts or keepsakes. •
