Bread Dough Art

I'm just about to do some bread dough art, which has always been a classic craft for children. But you can make complicated adult things as well. I got a fantastic book from the library on it called Country Doughcrafts by Sophie-Jane Tilley and Susan Welby. ISBN: 0-696-20460-6.  The Basic Recipe is
Two Level Cups of All Purpose Flour, 1 Level Cup of table salt and 1/2 Cup of lukewarm water. If you want the detailed directions look for the book, although I'm sure there are many resources on line for bread dough art. It's a rainy day, and I'm a bit under the weather, but I should be able to handle this.  It will take my mind off of the dreary winter day. I'll let you know what I come up with.
