Welcome back to Kailas Craft Corner with Future In Sight! In today’s episode, Kaila Allen tells us the basics of air dry clay. We learn how to make a pinch pot and she touches on how to make a coil pot.
- Crayola Air Dry Clay
- Waxed Paper or silicone mat
- Plastic fork or knife
- Small bowl of water
- Salt Dough Recipe:
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup salt
- 1 cup warm water
- Food coloring
- Scented oils
Mix together the dry ingredients (flour and salt). Add warm water a little bit at a time, being careful to not add too much and make the dough too sticky. The dough should be moist enough to hold together into a ball, but not so sticky that it leaves residue on your hands.
To dry out your clay, place the pieces on a baking sheet and turn over every few hours until the clay is fully dry.
Optional: add color with scented markers or watercolor.
Or, set your oven to 200 degrees F and bake for 2 – 4 hours, turning the pieces each hour until dry.
