This is the basic recipe for bread dough. This is white in colour. As for the variations you can add saw dust or even sand to give texture. You make any model or flower and then paint with acrylic or oil colour. But for better results, I generally add colour to the dough and proceed. This will look more natural and especially time saving too.
As I mentioned earlier, I am taking bread craft for the last seventeen years. I am conducting basic as well as advanced course. For the basic course, there will be wreath, magnets, small wall hangings, basket show piece, and photo frames. As for the advanced course, there will be birds, deer, constructing tree i.e scenery with house etc, enchanted tree . I will publish the photos of these works as soon as possible.
