Cannon’s Creek School
Watercress Tuna in Cannon's Creek
As part of our group task we had to decide on some kind of artwork that we wanted to do for the project. We decided on sculpture so we asked our teacher to help.
We found a recipe for salt dough in a school journal:
Make a Pendant by Megan Pickett
in School Journal, Part 2, Number, 2, 2006.
Make a Pendant
1 cup of salt
How to dry salt dough:
Objects made from salt dough can be dried in the sun or in the oven. The oven temperature should be about 105 degrees Celsius. Drying in the oven will take about an hour on each side, depending on how big the object is.
We followed the instructions and put our sculptures in the oven. It was a complete disaster! They melted everywhere and looked like something not very nice.
So we found a different recipe from the lovely Mrs. Nesbit in Room One at Cannon's Creek School and this time it worked much better.
After baking the sculptures we then painted them and left them in the sun to dry.
Here are our lovely sculptures:
