- 3 cups flour
- 1.5 cups salt
- 6 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 3 cups water
- 3 to 4 tablespoons oil
- icing food coloring (This paste will color the dough deep rich colors that regular food coloring can not match. Purchase at cake decorating or craft stores.)
Mix the dry ingredients (except the glitter) together in a big pan.
Add the water, oil, and food coloring; stir until the lumps are worked out and the food coloring well-mixed.
Cook the mixture over medium heat and continue stirring until the dough thickens and gathers into a big ball.
When the dough cools, knead in the glitter.
Keep the playdough in an air tight container or a sealed plastic baggie.
