Salt Dough Magnets and Ornaments

Salt Dough Recipe

(I see you're skipping dinner ...)

2 cups flour (go cheap, save the Bob's Red Mill for eating)
1 cup table salt (not kosher, not sea salt, you want fine grain)
3/4 cup water

Mix it up (I just use my hands). Roll it out with a rolling pin on a floured surface and cut with cookie cutters for ornaments. Punch a hole with a straw for stringing. Put on a parchment lined baking sheet at 200 degrees for about 20 minutes, flipping over halfway through. Test with your fingertips for firmness. OR sculpt into any not-too-heavy shape you like. Embed a disc-magnet into the back and poof! magnet. Paint with acrylic. Or a little mod modge and glitter if you're into that kind of thing (which I AM). Or keep em naked and see who's the first to try to eat one.

Now ... PHOTOS!

put the magnet in as flat as possible before baking, no need to glue

In particular I love the simple pink dot by the artist, Magnolia.


Though I'm also a fan of the simple pink M on the artist's self-portrait.
