Here's how to do it....................

1... In a large mixing bowl combine the flour and the salt.

Graduakly add the water. Squeeze the dough with both hands until it is smooth. If the clay gets crumbly, wet your hands with a little water. If the clay gets too wet, sprinkle it with a little more flour and squeeze again.Store the clay in a plastic bag until you are ready to use it.

2... Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. This will be your work surface. Do all your modeling and drying on the sheet.

Directions for working with the clay will be given in each projcet description.

3... Finished objects can be dried in the air, on more quickly in the oven. To air-dry your objects, place them on the foil covered cookie sheet in the sun for a few hours, or let them dry overnight.

This way of drying is good for small objects.

4... To oven dry your objects set at low 225~. Bake small thin objects for about 15 minutes. Bake thick objects for about ½ hour each side.

5... After your objects have dried and cooled, they are ready to be painted with felt tip markers. To protect the finnish on your object, brush them with two coats of clear nail polish after the colors are dry. This will help the colors from coming off.
