DIY FeedMyPaws Project: Dog Paw Print!


Hi everyone!

Today we're doing a slightly different tutorial: It's a DIY project! :) All you need are 2 main ingredients that you probably already have at home :)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup plain flour *
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • Water (approx 3/4 cup)
  • Optional: food colouring (I used turmeric for this one. However, because this isn't something for your dog to consume, you can feel free to use any crazy, artificial colours! I just didn't have any at home haha. I really wanted a bright pink one!!)

Bake at 180 degrees celsius for approximately 15 minutes. Baking is NOT compulsory for this project. You can air-dry it as well (takes 2-3 days). Baking simply accelerates the drying process.

*I recommend using any plain, white flour. Bleached or unbleached is fine. As your dog isn't going to eat this, any inexpensive flour will do :) Avoid self-raising flour though, your paw print will end up really bloated!

Tips after the video tutorial ;D 

TIPS:

1.To store your paw print for longer, consider investing in a glaze that's used for acrylic paint. You can also use Mod Podge or other types of glaze used for polymer clay :) Otherwise, your paw print will probably only have a lifespan of about one week. IMPORTANT: ONLY GLAZE YOUR PAW PRINT AFTER IT'S DRY!

2. You can paint your paw print with acrylic paint once it's dry :)

3. You can air-dry this dough, although it might take up to 48 hours

4. The little cracks you see are pretty normal. You can add a little more water for a smoother dough but if you choose to bake instead of air-dry, you might still get some cracks :)
