White bread clay #1
Process, blend or mash up the pieces of white bread.Break it down into small pieces or crumbs. Hand ripping is fine too!
Put the pieces of bread into a bowl.Add the necessary amount of salt and water. Mix.
Knead the dough on a clean surface.When pliable and adhering together, it is ready to use.
Make clay projects.The bread is ideal for making beads, figurines and other small clay projects. To make beads:
- Shape the bread into beads.
- Pierce each bead at the end of a skewer and thread it along the skewer.
- Bake in a slow oven (around 130ºC/250ºF) until firmed. If you have made other shapes, bake them at the same temperature also.
Decorate the cooled beads or shapes with paint or markers as desired.
White bread clay #2
Have your child rip one slice of bread into tiny pieces into a bowl.Add the white glue to the bread crumbs, and mix with a fork until all the crumbs are moistened.
Roll a bit of the mix between your fingers to check its consistency.This will vary depending on the dryness of your bread. The mix should be pliable and somewhat sticky. If it feels very wet, or too gummy to roll into a ball, tear up and mix in a little more bread.
Have your child can gather the dough into a ball.Knead it for a minute or two with his fingers or rolling it between his palms. Soon the dough will become elastic and satin like.
- As your child models the dough, it may begin to dry out. If it does, he can dip his fingertips in water (have a small bowl at the worktable) and knead the dough until it becomes more pliable.
Make things.Unlike many homemade doughs, this recipe has a fine, elastic texture that won't crack, even during intricate modeling projects like earrings, buttons, beads or tiny figurines. Bread dough also is a great medium for taking impressions: A small piece pressed against the outside of a favorite shell makes a beautiful pendant or faux fossil. To add a hard, semigloss finish, your child can mix equal parts water and white glue and brush on several coats.
- Drying time: White bread dough air-dries in 1 to 3 days.
