Bread Craft - Recipe



Bread craft is really made of bread slices and needs no cooking or baking and is air dried. One can easily make beautiful roses , flowers and other items with it. Its non-edible of course !
I came across this recipe which I tried out successfully , here it is -

MATERIALS REQUIRED
4 Slices of bread
4 Tablespoons white glue /fevicol
4 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon cold cream
A few drops of lime juice /vinegar

METHOD
Remove crusts from the slices , mash the slices to powdery consistency .
Add all the rest of the ingredients to form a smooth dough. It could be sticky in the beginning but fear not as it will dry up pretty fast.
Use powder on hands while kneading the dough and while making dough craft.
Using lemon juice or vinegar hopefully reduces the chances of insects making a merry feast of the decorative item !
TIP
The dough can be kept in the fridge in an air tight container or plastic wrap for a few days.
After the glue is mixed the dough becomes inedible.

  2. Hi

    I was going through the net searching for dough recipes and landed at your blog. The art pieces are nice, I have one query though, since you have written this more than 3 years ago, are the pieces ok? I mean don't we need to add anything to the dough to prevent fungus? Thanks in advance
