  • Salt dough cooking times!

    Please can someone give me some advise, I have made some salt dough this afternoon and tried cooking it in the oven at 1/2 gas mark but has taken hours, can someone tell me how to speed the process up and what gas mark should I be using?

    Many thanks and look forward to hearing from yuo soon

    The only salt dough I have cooked is with a troup of Cub Scouts with the dough stuck on the end of a stick hanging over a camp fire.
    I bet that doesn't help does it.

      Oh c**p your meant to cook it......
      Opps ....

      I put mine on plate warmer setting or after i've cooked something and it has cooled, its about 3-6 hrs and i find if i do it any quicker it puffs up but that might be the PVA i stick in it to make it more waterproof. I've only did this for token things I make though.....

          I cook mine on the rings, usually takes no more than 10 minutes to clump together.

                Hi Lucy

                You can microwave salt dough ornaments - here's a link
                Personally, I preferred the long s-l-o-w oven-drying process, but it's ages since I made any.

                You could try PMing CurlyFries who makes fantastic salt dough creations!

                  Hiya,
                  I usually cook mine overnight on about number 1 or 2 ...you can turn it up very slightly near the end but keep an eye on the colour changing....Have just returned to saltdough after a long break and can;t wait to get started again.

                    When the dough has cooked, could you drop fragrant oils, on the back of it, to scent it?

                      cooking salt dough

                      At one of my teaching placements we made cakes to put in the role play area (so they could be used for days) and we cooked the salt dough for about 3 hours on gas mark 6. And left it to cool for the rest of the day, then decorated the salt dough with paint the following day.

                      We also mixed some cooking herbs into the salt dough mixture to give it a frangrance when cooked.
