  • 200ml water
  • 300g plain flour 
  • 300g salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  1. Mix the flour and salt in a bowl. Slowly and gradually pour the water into the flour and salt, mixing well.
  2. Add the vegetable oil and mix well.
  3. Take the salt dough and place it on a clean surface that has been sprinkled with flour. Knead the dough until it is firm and wrap it in cling film. Place the dough in a fridge for 30 minutes before you use it.
  4. Roll out the salt dough to about 1cm thick. Use cookie cutter shapes to cut out the dough and place them on greaseproof paper on a baking tray.
  5. Leave to dry naturally overnight, or bake in an oven for about 4 hours at low temperature.
  6. When they are dry, paint the salt dough with acrylic paint.
