Making Salt Clay

This clay is really cool. It is way cheaper than the stuff at the hobby shops! If you add alum, it will eventually harden on its own. If not, you can bake it and you are ready to paint your project and display it. Have fun!

Total Time: a few minutes

Yield: 1 large ball

Source: Little Hands art book



  1. Put your salt and flour in a large bowl.
  2. Mix well.
  3. Add your water, mix well.
  4. Turn out onto the table and this is what you should have. I added about 6 tablespoons more water. Whatever you do, add it gradually. Too much water will ruin your clay.
  5. Knead till smooth, smiley face optional.
  6. If you have added alum, simply leave your project out in the open air and it will eventually harden. If not, bake small shapes in a 300 degree F oven for 30-40 minutes, or until hard. Store unused clay in an airtight container.
