Posted by August 8, 2011 6 Commentson
There are numerous recipes out there but I like this one because I find it not be too dry and it doesn’t leave any residue on the hands dring play. What you will need? 1 cup plain flour 1 tbsp oil 1 cup water ½ cup salt 2 tsp cream of tartar 2 tsp food colouring Pour all dry ingredients together in a saucepan. Add oil and combine food colouring to water, then add to dry ingredients. I use a whisk before heating as I find this helps remove lumps and blends the ingredients. Cook over medium heat constantly stirring until it becomes a thick blob. This is hard work! Then turn out onto a clean surface and knead into a smooth blob. When cool, store in a zip lock bag to keep it from drying out.
