My salt dough recipe uses two cups of plain flour, one cup of salt and one cup of water, added slowly to mix to a dough. Roll out the dough and cut into small circles. Then you can make imprints in the dough to add a bit of texture - we used coins and cocktail sticks.
Bake the coins in the oven on a baking tray. I cooked them for about as long as I'd cook biscuits - at 180C for about 10-15 minutes. If they are still soggy in the middle I find that leaving them on a hot radiator for a couple of hours works well to dry them out.
Then paint. We used a mixture of yellow, red and brown paints. Then when they were dry we finished off with a coat of some gold glittery paint.
