Jabba the Hutt lives in a palace on the planet Tattoine where he runs a criminal empire and has a bounty out for Han Solo. Jabba is eventually defeated by our heroes, but nonetheless his shape and appearance are perfect for molding from salt dough!

Extra flour if needed
Paint: olive greenyellowish tan, red-orange, black
Preheat oven to 250 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, stir together salt, flour and water. If dough is still stickly, add a teaspoon of additional flour at a time until dough forms a ball when stirred.
Using half of the dough, roll in your hands then shape into a wide log on the parchment, tapering the end into a tail.
Roll three tablespoons of dough separately to create three balls. Flatten each one and layer them on top of each other to create Jabba’s rolls.
Use ½ tablespoon of dough broken into two pieces to roll up and create the arms. Stick them to the sides.
Roll the remaining dough into a ball, then shape the top into a soft point. Place on top of the rolls.
Bake in preheated oven for 2 ½ hours then cool completely.
Paint the entire thing with yellowish tan.
Use a small paintbrush dipped in olive green and dab excess paint off onto paper towel. Dry brush the green paint along the top of the tail, the arms, the back of the head, side and top of the head and along the edges of the rolls.
Use a thin paintbrush and red-orange paint to add the eyes. Dot on black in the center with the handle end of the paintbrush.
When eyes are dry, trace around them with black marker. Add eyebrows, nose and mouth.
Use a gray marker to add lines along the tail, lines under eyes and chin, and to add some shading to the rolls and alongside the arms.
