Lamasa

Lamasa is a Spanish kitchen craft. It is similar to working with sugar dough as in icing and cake decorations. Lamasa can be used to make name plates, photo frames, etc. Here we have used this simple yet beautiful art to make labels for storage jars in the kitchen. They will surely lend an artistic look to your kitchen shelves!

For the lamasa dough you will need the following Ingredients:-

cup corn flour

cup fevicol (or any type of wood glue)

1 tsp glycerin

lemon juice

tsp zinc oxide

1 small tube white oil paint

Food colours

Baby oil

Aluminum pot

Aluminum foil

Rolling pin

Wooden spoon

Fevi quick (strong adhesive)

Plastic wrap

Cookie cutters

Clear varnish

Turpentine

How to make the dough:-

Spread a sheet of foil over a kitchen table and grease it with some baby oil for kneading the dough.

To make the dough mix together corn flour, fevicol, zinc oxide, glycerin and lemon juice in an aluminum pot and heat over a low flame stirring continuously with a wooden spoon till it forms a soft dough. Switch off the gas. Transfer it to the greased foil.

While the dough is still warm, knead it over the foil.

Once the dough is smooth, add 1 tube of white oil paint and knead again.

Divide the dough into 3-4 parts and wrap each portion in the plastic wrap.

Colour each portion of the dough using food colours.

If the dough is soft add corn flour and if it is dry add a little baby oil.

Store in air tight containers

Roll the coloured dough with a rolling pin.

Then cut the desired shapes using cutters.

Paste them on a jar using glue gun or fevi-quick.

Allow them to dry on the jar for 5-7 days.

Varnish with a thin coat of clear varnish for a glossy look.

And lo!!! You have ordinary jars turned into cute containers.
