Barnsdall Arts Sunday: Medusa Sculptures
Embrace a bad hair day by making a Medusa sculpture from home-made clay at Barnsdall Arts Sunday. Make a face that can turn a person to stone.
Here’s the recipe for salt dough, the medium we are using:
In a mixing bowl, combine:
- 1 Cup Salt
- 1 Cup Flour
- Water (add one teaspoon at a time and knead until the mixture has the consistency of Play-Dough)
- Cooking oil (optional)
- Food coloring (optional)
Make your sculpture and bake on a cookie sheet at 200 degrees for a couple of hours or until the sculpture is hard.
Use acrylic paint and then acrylic medium (or Modge-Podge) to seal it.
