Flour, oil, salt, cream of tarter. The Cream of Tarter is really important, it keeps the dough from becoming sticky and spoiling.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
beet, spinach, and carrot juice
Mix flour, salt and oil, and slowly add the water. Cook over medium heat, stirring until dough becomes stiff. Turn out onto wax paper and let cool. Knead the playdough with your hands until of proper consistency. Use as is, or divide into balls and add a few drops of the vegetable juices to make green, pink, and orange.
~ you can use food dye if you do not have the colored fruit juices. Have fun and happy sculpting!
