Here's another baking clay recipe that kids can use to make terrific sculptures. See the other recipe HERE:

What You Need:
What You Do:

Cook over med heat stirring constantly until mixture is the texture of mashed potatoes.

Let cool.

Knead well by hand.

You can cut this "clay" with cookie cutters or use small molds.

Air dry for approx three days or bake on 175 degrees until firm (depends on thickness of art project).

I usually bake about 40 min one side and then turn and bake on other side.

You can add food coloring to the clay to make it colored, or paint with acrylics once hardened.

I use this clay to make pins, charms, etc. Normally I paint the projects and shellac them. These are easy and inexpensive. The dough will keep for 2 or three days in a plastic bag, but best to use right away.
