- 1 cup of plain flour
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1 tablespoon of cream of tartar
- 1 tablespoon of oil
- 2 fruit teabags (or food dye)
- 1 cup of hot water
First add your teabags to the cup of boiling water, you'll need to leave for 4-5 minutes to get a rich colour, I'm impatient though so mine only got a pink tinge. You can use food dye instead (add to the water) however, the teabags smell divine! Also add the tablespoon of oil. I used vegetable oil, you can use any oil. Baby oil gives it a nice smell on your hands when you're playing with it.
In a bowl add the dry ingredients together.
Add the coloured water to the dry ingredients and start mixing
It will be quite sticky and sloppy at first.
Keep mixing and it will firm up, if it doesn't seem to be turning you can add a little more flour until it does.
Keep in a self-seal bag or airtight container and it lasts for quite a long time. If the air gets to it and it feels a little crunchy just soften it in your hands with some more oil.
