Sculpting Design

Grab a pinch of dough add start shaping your letters.

Baking Your Design

bake love lettersBake your letters at 250 degrees for 120 minutes. Dough must be baked until it is solid hard all the way through.
Watch out for puffing while baking thicker designs; try to keep it less than ½ inch for better outcomes.
Make test run before you make bunch of letters because dough has a mind of its own and I can’t say for sure how your clay will dry out.

Painting & Varnishing

Use acrylic paints for your dough letters; they can all be the same color or each letter can be a different color. After the paint is dried, cover your letters with 2 to 3 layers of varnish to seal out moisture.
