DIRECTIONS

  • Trim the crust away from the bread.
  • Pinch the bread into very small pieces.
  • Slowly pour the glue into the bread pieces and mix by hand until a dough has formed.
  • Package the dough in a plastic bag or airtight container and refrigerate overnight to "ripen.".
  • Lightly coat your hands with vegetable oil if dough is not too sticky to handle.
  • Knead the ripened dough until smooth and pliable.
  • Divide dough and color with food coloring or acrylic paints if desired.
  • The addition of the liquid in the form of coloring will cause the dough to become a little sticky again, but just keep on working the dough - it will regain its manageable state.
  • Model dough into desired shapes and insert twisted pipe cleaners into the backs of your figures for hanging or simply form a hole with a toothpick.
  • Air dry on wax paper.
  • It will take from 1 to 3 days, depending on the thickness of your ornament.
  • Can also roll and cut this clay.
  • Keep in airtight container in refrigerator.
