How to Make Your Own Clay


Oven Flour Clay Recipe
Instructions for making clay using flour, salt, and water.

Materials Needed:

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Cup Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 3/4 - 1 Cup Water

Mix together flour and salt. Add the oil and then slowly add the water and stir until you get a nice clay consistency. Once completely mixed, make into the desired shapes. Bake in a 250 degree oven for approximately 1 hour. This will vary depending on how thick you creations are. One hint, do not make shapes too thick or they will crack with baking.

The star shown here was made using this recipe. Before it was put in the oven, I made a hole for the ribbon using the end of a straw. Once the star was out of the oven and cooled, I painted it with yellow paint and then glue. The glitter was then sprinkled on generously! once the ribbon was in place this made a fun necklace!

From Ian: Here is a similar recipe using 4 Cups of Flour, 1 cup of Salt, and 1 1/2 Cups of Water. Your creations can be baked at 300 degrees for about an hour. For a golden appearance, paint your creations with egg yolk before you put it in the oven.
