Homemade Air Dry Clay

I was reading a favorite blog, Ordinary Life Magic and saw the most adorably, spunky beaded flower bowl.  I think a flower bowl would be the perfect touch to my spring table display.

Here is the recipe for the air dry dough needed to create a lovely little bowl all of your own.

  • 2cups water
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

1.Mix together in a medium-sized pot.
2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly.
3. The dough will eventually become hard, Stir the mixture till it starts to stick to the spoon.
4. At this point, dump the dough onto wax paper and allow it to cool (about fifteen minutes).
5. Knead the dough until it is smooth.

**This will air dry. You can speed up the process by baking in a 200 degree oven for 30 minutes to an hour. **
