Ingredients •2 cups plain flour (all purpose) •2 tablespoons vegetable oil •1/2 cup salt •2 tablespoons cream of tartar •Up to 1.5 cups boiling water (adding in increments until it feels just right) •food colouring (optional) •few drops glycerine (optional- adds more shine!)
Directions •Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil in a large mixing bowl •Add food colouring TO the boiling water then into the dry ingredients (colour optional) •Stir continuously until it becomes a sticky, combined dough •Add the glycerine (optional) •Allow it to cool down then take it out of the bowl and knead it vigorously for a couple of minutes until all of the stickiness has gone. * This is the most important part of the process, so keep at it until it’s the perfect consistency!* •(If it remains a little sticky then add a touch more flour until just right) Voila!
You can color them with regular food color or Wilton colors. The Wilton will stay vibrant. Store this play dough in an air tight container. It will last for up to 6 months. If you live in a humid climate you might need to store it in the fridge and out of sunlight.
