Step 3: Finish hot cross buns

Once they've been in the oven paint the buns.
The crosses and bases will already be the right colour but add some orangey brown to the tops.
I also painted on a little varnish to look like the glaze.

Note; the salt dough expands slightly in the oven so flat edges don't come out so flat.
To fix this just use some sand paper to file them flat again.
This is something I had to do with the bottoms of the hot cross buns.
<p>Do we have to use salt dough ? Or could we use sculpey's bake and bend clay?</p>
This is cool but if you want to see something very creative try SALT DOUGH SMILIES <br>These are the best and really cool and very good activity for the children
So cute:) I want to make those;D
Nice and clever idea! And this is very eatable (if you are a playmobil!) <br>
good luck.. very cool looking
its amazing how they can look SO life like!! brilliant!
Beautiful! Can you please tell me what acrylic paint is?
It's a water based paint that dries quite quickly and I've found it sticks to most surfaces. I'm guessing most paints would work, like regular childrens poster paints.
These pieces are amazing! My daughter and I want to try this, too! One question: What kind of paint did you use?<br><br>Again: great work; thanks for posting this!<br>
Thank you!<br>I used acrylic paint, I hope that helps
To keep the tasty-looking mini foodstuffs from attracting bugs and to offset the hygroscopic nature of salt dough, it's a good idea to varnish the items on all sides.
The detail is amazing, nicely done!
such a small scale but still looks tasty!
