Salt Dough Recipe

salt dough

Salt dough consists of only 4 ingredients, which most of them are commonly available in every household.  It is simple to make and its consistency and texture make this dough excellent for a variety of craft projects.


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar (optional)


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Knead until you achieve a firm consistency.
  3. Shape it as you want.  Let it dry.  (Note: It will take a couple of days until it is completely dry.  Let it air-dry.  I don’t recommend to bake or microwave it since the dough might get some air pockets that could affect your project shape.)
  4. For a finishing touch, you can paint your project using acrylic paints and gloss glaze.

Exhibit and enjoy your master piece!!!
