    my 2 yr old had fun but, why the salt? just wondering... it makes it very gritty/clumpy with the paint brush. next time I will try it without salt.

    Now how many does this make?

    I tried this, to me its more gritty than puffy. To answer your question about how much does this make? When the mixture is make it will fill up a 20 oz. bottle. I split the mixture to see what different colors I could come up with. For me it didn't spread the way I liked for it was too gritty. Maybe I should have used a mixture to mix the ingredients. Trial and error kind of of thing.

    I tried it and it was completely stupid. You might as well just stick to flour and water.

1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup (give or take) water. Knead until dough forms. Make impression. Bake at 200 for 3 hours. Do every summer and make a stepping stone path :)

    This worked great but my though was - wouldn't this turn back to goo when it rains?

    Yes it does. It's a great idea if kept inside, but water does make it mushy.
