1. Mix all the ingredients together in a saucepan.  Be careful with the dye as some concentrated dyes as some are extremely strong.  

2. Adult: cook on medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes.  Stirring constantly until the mixture becomes stiff. Store the dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  It will last for quite a while and has the consistency of commercially prepared play dough.

If you need addition colour it can be worked in to the dough.

If anyone has any other tips please add them to the comments below.

  1. I found that dyes works better than paint

  2. When painting trees and tree branches, I first use a round brush to paint in the main trunk; then I use a smaller brush to add branches and finally a script liner to add the smallest branches. art camps Markham
