black play doh

posted at 14:02 GMT by M.River in /news/mriver

Here is the basic recipe for the “Black Play Doh” I’m making for OTO on Saturday. It’s a modified version of a recipe found on the net with some trial and error.

black play doh


2 cups flour

2 cups warm water

1 cup salt

2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

1 Tablespoon cream of tartar (optional for improved elasticity)

1 bottle food coloring (Mc-Cormick, black )

Mix all of the ingredients together, and stir over low heat. When the dough pulls away from the sides, remove the pan from heat. Let the dough cool.

Place the dough into a large bowl and knead until it becomes smooth. Shape the dough into a ball. Make a divot in the center of the ball, and drop some food coloring in. Fold the dough over, working the food color through the body of the dough, trying to keep the raw dye away from your hands (gloves are best). Work the dye through, a bit at a time, until the entire bottle is empty.

When you’re done store it in an air-tight container.

So, try it at home. If you get a good batch , bring it to OTO and we’ll toss it on the pile. See you on Sat. permanent link to this post
