I am sure anyone who frequents pinterest is well aware of this white oven bake recipe by The Woodside Kitchen. We gave it a try on Tuesday and it's getting our little mommy/son brains all worked up. So far I plan on using these little tokens as lavender scented fillers in little monogrammed liberty sachets yet to be completed. Since I cannot help myself many more will follow in the shape of tags stamped in color. We have a batch going in the oven right now with navy blue ink stamp impressions, half flowers for me half octopi for Finn...
The pictures on the original post from the Woodside Kitchen are most likely taken before the ornaments were oven dried. They have a wonderful translucence that is lost once dried. Maybe a coat of satin spray top coat would bring it back?
Things that I have found important:
Your dough must be completely smooth, the slightest imperfection will not magically go away.
Place the shapes on a cornstarch covered surface to wait while you work, if you put them on the parchment paper too soon they will simply get soggy underneath and ripple.
The bottom side always seems to crack a little, I have no solution for this so far.
More to come on this subject soon no doubt as I have doubled the recipe. It's also possible that I will try more professional solutions, such as pre-made white clay from an art supply store whether oven dry or air dry, it's all worth trying out.
