"This is such a weird way to make your own air-dry clay."
The main question is: Does it grow mold? NO!!! By adding glue and salt, they won't grow mold. Think of it like making classic Papier-mâché with flour and water. Once it's dry, it will last forever. THIS IS NOT EDIBLE!
5-6 slices of white bread (no crust)
1 TBSP Glue or Mod Podge
1 tsp Lotion
1/2 tsp fine salt
Clear acrylic sealer spray.
-Cut crust off of bread
-Tear bread into tiny pieces and place in a bowl.
-Add glue, lotion and salt.
-Knead until dough forms. It will be tough and
sticky. Keep going until smooth.
-Once you have a smooth dough, let rest in a plastic bag for 30 mins before use.
-Keep away from air while in use.
-After you've make your piece, Spray it with a clear acrylic sealer.
* If you'd like to add color, mix in acrylic paint of
* If dough is too dry add a bit more glue, if it's too wet, add more bread and add lotion as needed.
*Keep kneading until it comes together, at first it will feel like a mess.
*If you'd like to see how I made the mushrooms, Check the video. I used watered down coffee powder to color them.
