Sift flour and salt into a small mixing bowl, and mix in the water until you can form a ball. It will be similar to playdough.  Do not add too much water, it shouldn’t be sticky.

Bake the dough circles for 1-1 ½ hours, or until dry and hard, but not brown. Remove them from oven and let them cool. We usually let them cool 30 minutes to 1 hour. So this is a great thing to start in the morning and have ready to paint in the afternoon 😉
