  4. If you’d like to add color to your dough, place it in a stainless steel bowl and add a few drops of food coloring. While wearing latex gloves, knead the food coloring gently into the dough, until desired color is reached.
  5. Allow to cool before handling.
  6. Store in an airtight container.

Note: You may need to add more flour depending on your climate. If it's too sticky, continue to add flour a little at a time until desired consistency is reached.

    Use baby oil, instead of the canola oil, it won’t go bad as fast. Plus, it will smell better.

    Hi, I just made this, however my dough was way too sticky! Anything I can do to fix it. I think I may have used hot water instead of warm.

    For the play dough I usually make, from the imagination tree blog, it usually starts out sticky, but I knead it until it’s a good texture.
