True, it was not for decoration that crafts were made, but for personal success, prosperity and prosperity. Is this really so, it is difficult to say, because the research of scientists on this topic has not been conducted. But one can confidently state that a good mood is guaranteed both from the contemplation of the creations of human hands and from the process of their manufacture. Painting from a salt dough by one's own hands is an excellent therapy from spleen, and for particularly talented craftsmen can become a salary. So, maybe our ancestors were right?
Making salted dough
A glass of salt must be mixed with the samethe amount of flour, add half a glass of water and knead the dough. You can, but not necessarily, add a spoonful of vegetable oil to the mixture, in this case the dough will be more elastic and glossy.
Roll the dough into a ball and put it in the fridge for an hour or two. And only after that you can start work.
A picture of salted dough with your own hands canto be carried out by different methods: from a natural color test, and then painted with gouache, or from a color test. To do this, mix the mixed mass into parts, in each of which, gradually, by drop, add gouache, until you get the right shade. Now you can start making a picture of a salted dough.

But it's worth it. If the product is dried in the oven, it is obligatory at the lowest temperature of 2-4 hours, it will be much faster. But there is always the possibility of burning, the appearance of cracks, if the temperature was higher than it was needed.
