Salt beads. Make your own salt beads

To make salt beads you are going to need:

  • 1/2-cup salt
  • 1/4-cup cornstarch
  • 1-drop food coloring
  • 1 drop perfume (optional)

Mix the salt and the cornstarch together.  Next you will need to pour in water and coloring. Cook until the mixture is thick. Add perfume drops. Mix well until smooth. Form the dough into beads. After making the small beads then run a pin through while they are still moist where you can later put a string. Let dry well, sitting for 4 to 5 days and then you can use the beads to make something great!

Missing the amount of water Comments By: Glitz on 2005-01-08
The recipe tells you to add the water. How much is not given. I would assume 1/4 c to 1/2 c but not for sure. Needs corrected.
TipKing says: Unfortunately the sender of the tip omitted to add the amount of water. I would think that your estimates are on the right line

question Comments By: anon on 2007-01-06
how sturdy are the beads after setting and will they melt away if out in the reain when worn or will sweat make them disinagrate?
