|Dough Art Texturing Technique|
2 Cups of flour (any flour but self-rising)
3/4 Cups boiling (or warm) water
1/2 Cup salt (preferably plain for smoother dough)
Large mixing bowl
Regular sized fork for stirring
DOUGH ART RECIPE MIXING INSTRUCTIONS: Place the salt in a bowl and then pour the boiling water into the salt. Mix well and then cool. Pour the total amount of flour into the water and salt mixture and mix well by stirring with a fork. Be sure to use a large mixing bowl for best results. Once the dough has been kneaded and refrigerated, it is ready for sculpting. The dough can be colored when kneaded or it can be painted after hardening. It can be stored in zip-lock bags or plastic air-tight containers for up to two weeks. However, it's best used within a week as it can get watery if left too long in the fridge.
For a smooth surface use the technique found in my instruction books included on my dough art recipe page. For a regular surface which is characteristic of salt dough, bake small to medium projects at 325 degrees for 25 to 45 minutes. Check your projects while baking. For large projects, 4 to 5 inches or more, bake at 325 to 350 degrees for about 40 minutes to an hour, checking your projects while baking.
