Salt Dough Creations (Painting Process)

After properly checking on our salt dough creations – I discovered they were a little spongey still! And because I promised P1 she could paint them today I’ve had to scramble about and cook some more quickly. I added more salt than before and placed a tray on the top on them to stop the air from rising inside. Seems …
