a No-Bake Clay Pot
This super easy
pot requires no baking at all!
4 cups flour
1 tsp alum
1-1/2 c salt
1-1/2 c water
white craft glue
Mix dry goods in
a bowl, then slowly add water, kneading clay as you go.
Roll and shape
clay into a ball. Using your thumb, press a hole in the middle,
and gently press out on each side of the whole to create the
hole inside the pot. Gently press until the sides are about
1/2" thick. You can shape the pot as you wish, such as
gently making it taller or with scallops around the top edge.
Sit pot carefully
on a shelf and allow to dry for 2-3 days. Check to ensure
it is completely hard and dry before painting your design
with tempura paint. Allow to dry, then seal it by painting
on a mixture of equal parts of glue and water.
