female figure from bread doughWhen you think of bread dough, you often imagine wreaths, apples, and napkin rings. These are fun and easy to make from bread dough, but you can also create other sculptures. Personally, I’m not a fan of wreaths and such, so I’m going to make a female figure.

wire frameI start by making a thin frame out of wire. This will be the body of the female figure. Next, I wrap a layer of aluminum foil around the wire. This will require less bread dough and reduce the chances of the dough cracking during baking.
applying dough to the wire frameNow I’m going to apply the dough. I make sure the aluminum foil is completely covered.

attach the arms to the torsoNext, I attach the arms to the torso. For additional support, you can insert a piece of wire into the arm. You can also rest the torso against a cup or another oven-safe object. Once the dough is baked, it will be sturdy enough.
