Fun with Air Dry Clay

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.

Supply List:

  • 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

Optional ingredients:

  • 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.
