Bakers Clay Recipe

First -- It will take research to translate grams and ml. of your salt dough recipe so I can use it.

I want to make a replica of a burned stick I had of the 2002 big Hayman Fire in Colorado that burned 133 homes and 138,114 acres of forest. I need the stick as a prop for a speech I'm planning for an area Toastmasters meeting. My original souvenir stick obtained during my tour of the burned area has been misplaced and I need it now.

So I have selected Bakers Clay from an old steno notebook several decades old from my newspaper days as family editor (1969-95) and plan to make it soon.
I can't make the clay scorched in color so will paint it. Below the recipe is: Creative Alternatives; PO Box 5100, Suite 101; Tyler, TX 75712.

Thanks for the recipe

Hi Doreen,

Thanks for sharing. FYI, the Baker's clay is good for making flat objects for something like wall or hanging decorations. This clay lacks of body so it's not suitable for free-standing sculpture.

I would recommend you to go with salt dough recipe which is more robust and can be used for free standing object.
