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.
In bowl: 2 c. white flour and 1/2 c. salt
Add: 1/2 c. water
Stir for a few minutes
Slowly add: 1/4 c. water while turning dough in bowl.
Form dough in a ball and work in any dry
flour and salt
Knead: 5 minutes
Mold dough into shapes. Join pieces by adding a little water. Use cookie cutters for preschoolers.
Bake: 250 degrees F. for 15-30 minutes until hard
Cool completely. Paint with acrylics. Finish with lacquer.
