Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Mix together the flour, salt, and cream of tartar.
  2. Mix together ½ cup of warm water with a few drops of food coloring.
  3. Slowly pour the water into the flour mixture, stirring as you pour. Stir until combined, then knead with your hands until the flour is completely absorbed. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour until it doesn’t stick at all.
  4. Repeat process for whichever colors you want to make.

Notes

Mixing the food coloring with the water before combining with the dry ingredients allows you to blend them by stirring, without staining your hands.
