Salt Dough: 20 Practical Projects for the Home (Inspirations Series)by Lorenz Books, Penny Boylan
There can be few crafts that offer as much satisfaction as salt dough. The simplicity of the techniques and ready availability of the materials help explain the popularity of this historic tradition, which dates back to the days of Ancient Egypt and Rome. Taking its basic materials - flour, salt, and water - from the kitchen cupboard makes salt dough a cost-effective option. Salt Dough shows how it is also astonishingly versatile.
All of the 20 projects featured here have been specifically designed for practical and decorative use in and around the home. The book includes a complete range of styles - from a traditional Harvest Wheatsheaf and a Country Heart Garland to a contemporary Stone-effect Wall Clock. Liven up your hallway with an Indian-inspired Wall plaque or create interest at the dining table with the Berry Leaf Napkin Rings. A comprehensive range of decorative techniques is featured in the projects, including using different paint effects, embossing with beads and mosaics, and gilding. Detailed instructions take you through each stage of the preparation and step-by-step color photographs to show clearly how each project should progress.
