How to keep the dough for sculpting
We usually bought a regular plasticine for sculpting, but for now i’m doing my own dough for sculpting, it’s much profitably because cheaper. Moreover, your own dough will be more elastic and definitely safer than plasticine. You won’t spend a lot of time to knead the dough, it takes only about 20 minutes of your time to make. You can make as much as you want and then just store it in the refrigerator.
- Plastic bag
- Any container with a tight lid.
If you are going to keep the dough that has been used after doing crafts than you need to separate the dough into a different colors. Place each color in a pile.
Give your dough a squeeze and form it into a single lump when you keep it away.
Place your dough ball in a regular plastic bag and tie this tightly.
You may also keep the dough in a plastic or metal container with a tight lid.
- Before using, remove the dough from the refrigerator for 8 to 10 minutes before you do your crafts. During this time room temperature will slowly soften the clay. But if you don’t have much time, you can break off the ball and vigorously knead it in your hands for 1 to 2 minutes.You may store dough for sculpting in the refrigerator for up to 4-6 weeks.
- Dough can be used, molded and placed back into the storage multiple times.
- Dough of different colors should be stored in different containers.
