Ingredients: - all-purpose flour - salt - cream of tartar - lukewarm water - vegetable oil  

Instructions 1. Stir together the flour, salt and cream of tartar in a large pot. Next add the water and oil. If you’re only making one color, stir in the the color now.

2. Cook over medium-heat, stirring constantly. Continue stirring until the dough has thickened and begins to form into a ball. Remove from heat and then place inside a bowl, gallon sized bag or onto wax paper.

3. Allow to cool slightly and then knead until smooth. If you’re adding colors after, divide the dough into balls and then add the dough into the quart sized bags.
