How to: 
Bread Dough Clay
Bread Dough Modeling Clay.

4tbsp Aleene's Tacky Glue (Gold bottle, use silver bottle for a porcelain look.)
4slices white bread NO CRUSTS. 
2tbsp White or any other color acrylic paint.

Add the color at the time of mixing, it. (See image below)

(Add the color as it is more pleasing to work with)

2tbsp Cold Cream for hands to stop sticking.

Mix all together in container until it begins to stick together. Empty out on a board and knead until smooth. Wrap tightly in Saran wrap and store in fridge. Use as clay. Cut with cookie cutters, Sculpt with it make beads anything you like!


You can use any color you like, but some have more pigment. To get the color you want you will have to experiment with the amount to add.

Air dry. Do not bake. 
Finished articles can be painted and varnished.
This recipe will keep for ages. I tested a ball wrapped in Saran and kept in the fridge, after two months it was still as good as new.

Remember this will still break down in water after drying.  So use varnish.

With the paint added you can drop an item in water and if removed    carefully and allowed to dry it will return to it's hard state.

 

 Here you see dough ready to use.
