Experience with salt dough?

They should be fine, Spidey
I personally didn't like the salt dough though. It doesn't really set very nice. It was quite gritty, if that makes sense? And not very nice to work with. I'd go for a clay, personally crayola makes a.moulding clay that can be coloured in with textas that is pretty nice!

I have a recipe that uses oil, salt, flour, cream of tartar. You boil it until it becomes thick and stops sticking to the side of the pan. It has been in an air tight container in my fridge for 5 months and still fine,

I have salt dough Christmas ornaments that are about three years old and still going! They are kept in a ziploc bag between Christmas's and I glued a cardboard cutout to the back to give them a little reinforcment with the string.

Sorry, me again! I just double checked and this one was made in 2006. And there is a crack around the hole so I'm glad I had the cardboard on the back.
I used this recipe:
2 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water
colour if desired
Combine all ingredients to a firm dough. Roll and cut. Bake on greaseproof paper on a tray for 3hrs or until dry at 130 degrees celcius. Let cool and decorate. Store in air tight container.

I have ones that my brother and I made in 1987 they were varnished and stored in air tight containers.
