Step 1: Ingredients
First, to make clay you need:
1 cup of salt
2 cups of flour (You might want to add more so the mixture won’t turn out gooey)
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
¾ or 1 cup of water
A tray where you can put your clay on
Step 2: Step One
Mix the flour and the salt together.
Step 3: Step Two
Mix the flour and the salt along with the oil and the water. You are supposed to get a clay-like mixture so you have to mix well.
Step 4: Step Three
Now you can design! Make the mixture into whichever shape you want it to turn out like. Tip: Do not make your clay too thick, it will break and turn out bad.
Step 5: Step Four
Put your clay creations onto a tray and place it inside the oven. Cook it at 250 degrees for about an hour.
Step 6: Last Step
Take the clay out of the oven and wait for it to cool. Afterwards, you may decorate it however you want. I wanted it to be a cup, so I put the mixture around a plastic cup and put it in the oven. If you want to do this too, BE CAREFUL when you take it out for it might break.
