Just out of curiosity. I've been thinking about making a batch of salt dough, but I wasn't very sure how stiff, and well it would set. I'd like to possibly do some figure, or bust sculpting, but I'm afriad it might be too wet, and will just slowly head south once I set it.

   Any pointers with using salt dough would be awesome, because I can only find tutorials for Christmas ornaments, and flat projects, which is not exactly what I have in mind for it.

This might be a bit late but I've always found salt dough to generally be quite firm - almost like sugar cookies.

I'm not sure about sculpting with it, in my experience salt dough is particularly good for making wall plaques or something with a flat side that way when you bake it it'll lie flat. Sorry I cant be more helpful hope you have success with your project!
