This is my first time ever participating in a Craftster challenge and I am very excited to share! I made five salt-dough biscuits and then used a toothpick to draw  the Craftster guys on them. Then I popped the biscuits in the oven for about an hour and a half until they were rock solid. After they were all cooled off, I painted them with some acrylics and some mod podge. This all started as an experimental project for me but I am so happy with how they turned out!

Here they are all lined up on my wall:


And separately:












Thanks so much for looking!

Those are absolutely adorable! How did you make the salt biscuits, if you don't mind my asking?

Thank you guys so much! I am really happy with how they turned out! This was seriously the first time I made this recipe since I was in the brownies making Christmas ornaments. Smiley

To make the biscuits, I used 1 cup of salt, 1 cup of water and 2 cups of flour (and I had to add a small handful of flour to the batter as well, because it still felt too sticky...) Then I stuck the dough between two pieces of wax paper and rolled it out so I could draw the design onto the dough with a toothpick. I baked them for about an hour and a half (or so) at 250 degrees until they were really hard. After I let them cool down for a bit, I painted them and strung them up on my wall.
