Offering Bowls, including vessels such as urns, are used on the altar to hold blessed water, oil , Herbs, salt, and wine, or to make offerings to the deities.
Normally they are made of Copper or Silver or Clay but these are made of Salt Dough
This is a Great Project for kids or those new to Pagan / Wiccan Path
Here is a Recipe for Salt Dough
1 cup salt
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup luke warm water
1. In a large bowl mix salt and flour.
2. Gradually stir in water. Mix well until it forms a doughy consistency.
3. With your hands form a ball with your dough and kneed it for at least 5 minutes. The longer you kneed your dough the smoother it will be.
Store your salt dough in a air tight container and you will be able to use it for days.
You can paint your creations with acrylic paints and seal with varnish or polyurethane spray.
You can let your salt dough creations air dry, however salt dough can also be dried in the oven. Bake at 200 F until your creation is dry. The amount of time needed to bake your creations depends on size and thickness; thin flat ornaments may only take 45-60 minutes, thicker creations can take two to three hours or more. You can increase your oven temperature to 350 F, your dough will dry faster but it may also brown, which won't matter if you are painting your entire creation (you can also cover your dough in the oven before it turns brown).
Optional add a few drops of food coloring to each salt dough ball - you'll need to work the color through the dough with your hands. There are many things you can make with them
