A clay dough recipe for the fragile hearted.
The recipe, a cup of baking soda, 3/4 cup of water, 1/2 cup of corn starch. Mix the ingredients in a sauce pan, over medium low heat, stirring until it's the consistency of mashed potatoes. *For a more detailed tutorial, go check out The Woodside Kitchen.
When the dough has cooled, roll them out and have fun creating different shapes using cookie cutters.
Then, get creative making some imprints with rubber stamps.
Fragile hearts seemed poetic.
Bake the ornaments for roughly 1 hour at 175 degrees. Once cooled, hang and decorate.
A wonderful reminder that the heart and love are both fragile and to be handled with care.
Though I love my fragile heart, to take a page from Mellywood's Mansion, I desperately wanted this to be a delight BUT the more my ornaments dried out, the more *fragile* they started to look. Of the 13 ornaments I made, only 1 was worth saving. All were cracked and some cracks even went clear through to the back of the ornament.
Help me turn this disaster into a delight...where did I go wrong?
