  5. When you bake the dough, do you do so on a baking sheet?

  7. Total fail! Give better directions for such a cook project idea. Followed the little direction you gave and mine stuck solid to the pizza stone I baked it on. Had to soak it and scape it into the trash. You never said what you used to bake it on or if it needed to be greased or anything! Broken my toddler heart that she couldn't paint it because it didn't come out :(

  8. I just made this exact recipe, it made one pumpkin, for me anyways. I baked it on a jelly roll pan without any spray or lining. It came off just fine and is cooling now to paint. Thank you for this, super cute!!

  9. Cam you use food coloring in the dough before baking it? So no mess of paint

  10. Put on parchment paper or wax paper to avoid sticking

  13. Marisa, yes. It's salt and flour. Perfectly safe, just try not to let them ingest too much as salt isn't good for fur babies.

    To those asking about color, you can use food coloring before baking and you can also use the generic sharpies from the dollar tree to color the. We made christmas ornaments the year before last and used the sharpies to color them. Turned out great.

    Oh and you can always bake them on foil to avoid possible mess up's. We used cookie sheets with our ornaments.

    I would not recommend stepping stones unless you seal them. Why? Because rats/mice love them. That being said, wrap them in foil to keep critters out.

  16. You can find other salt dough recipes online. I used this same recipe to make ornaments and they cracked. When baking use a cookie pan with either parchment paper ir foil easy clean

  17. Make sure you put flour on top before you put kids hands and feet in...makes a mess if you do not and you have to reform

  18. Self rising flour or all purpose flour

  21. Wouldn't it disintegrate being a stepping stone outside in the rain and snow? And if animals will eat it why would I want to put it outside as a stepping stone?
