Ingredients for No Cook Clove Scented Autumn Play Dough
- This makes one biggish ball. Amazon Affiliate Links Provided for you to Purchase the Ingredients.
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1/2 cup table salt
- 2 Tbsp Cream of Tartar
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil – I used Sunflower Oil
- 1 cup of boiling water + another 1/2 a cup to add in little bits…
- food coloring – optional – I used pink – Wilton Set of 8 Icing Color Gel or MCCORMICK Food Coloring 4 Colors
- 1 tsp glycerine – optional. This adds more shine and silky feel! Wilton Glycerin, 2 Ounces (57g) or this Liquid Glycerine 8-Ounce (227g)
- Clove Scented Oil – a few drops – get 60 ml or 10ml here.
- Add all the dry ingredients (flour, salt and cream of tartar) together and stir.
- If you are going to add color to the play dough, add the food coloring to the cup of boiling water first…
- Add the first cup of water to the dry ingredients along with the oil and give it a stir. If you want to add the optional glycerin – now is the time. This really is an optional ingredient!
- Add the remaining 1/2 cup boiling water now, a little at a time until all the flour is absorbed. I usually use almost all the water…
- Wait for it to cool to warm and knead like bread.
- I added in the clove oil as I was kneading it – I added about 10 drops – up to you to decide how strong you want it.
- NOTE: If you want to make 2 different colors (or more) from one batch of ingredients – you are going to have to knead in the food coloring after it is finished – like we did in here in our ‘cook it’ – best play dough in the world recipe! You make a ball of white play dough and then divide it into as many colors as you wish to make.
This play Dough will keep in the fridge for weeks – months even – if stored in an air tight container in the fridge.
