Youll need: o 2 cups of plain flour o 1 cup of salt o 1 cup of water o oven o acrylic paint o knife o board o rolling pin o paintbrushes o baking tray o pen pencil or stylus Mix the two cups of flour into a bowl with one cup of salt and one cup of water with your hands until the dough is entirely moistened and sticks together. It should be like pizza dough easy to mold. Youll see the little grains of salt in the dough dont worry thats what it should look like. Roll out the dough into a sheet about a quarter of an inch thick. Then use your stylus pen or pencil to cut out a heart shape.
