Advent calendar: door 1 - the candle
Door 1 - The candle
That's how it's done:
You start with the blue or green dough and knead it properly. Then either roll them between your hands or on a flat surface into a small sausage. Use your finger to flatten the ends of the sausage so that you now have the shape of a block candle.
Now you can take a small amount of red play dough and a small amount of yellow play dough and use the two colors to create a flame. If you like, you can even create a really nice color gradient here by mixing the colors a little at the transition.
Now take the gray dough and rub it between your index finger and thumb into a small roll. This will be your wick - you now place this on your flame and bring both to your block candle. That's it!
