  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 TBS vegetable oil
  • 1 TBS powdered Alum


  • Add all ingredients to a large saucepan and begin stirring with a whisk over medium heat.
  • As mixture begins to thicken, you will need to switch to a wooden spoon, and continue stirring.
  • When the mixture becomes too think to stir, remove it from your pan and knead in food coloring! I like to split mine up and do different colors but you could also just do it in one big lump!
  • Store in an air tight container & have fun!
