No wonder dough crafts are becoming more popular all the time. It's the most inexpensive modeling medium in the world. And now, due to some recent techniques, your projects can last a lifetime. Forty original, step-by-step projects let you explore salt dough's versatility. They include: Citrus-fruit plates with "looks-real-enough-to-eat oranges and lemons. A welcoming sun plaque. A colorful court jester doll. Stunning carnival masks. Those with traditional tastes can capture bygone charm with a folk angel, gingerbread heart, or fruit-filled cornucopia, while a cowboy-theme Tex-Mex clock, unique metal-embedded bowls, and a checkerboard covered with friendly lizards will be delightful additions to contemporary decors. Because it's completely non-toxic, salt dough is ideal for children. Animal finger puppets and a dinosaur are fun toys that kids can make by themselves or with an adult friend. All techniques for kneading, coloring, drying and baking, painting, glazing and varnishing are clearly explained, including how to use basic household items such as scissors, toothpicks and wire to achieve spectacular effects. 160 pages (all in color), 9 x 11.
