Play Dough Recipe for Sculptures 

Have fun! Make a form then squash it and try something new. Sculptures will dry but are very fragile.

Ingredients:

1-cup flour

½ cup salt

1-tablespoon oil

1-tablespoon cream of tartar

1-cup water

Optional food coloring/ flavor extracts 

Directions:

Over low heat mix salt, flour, and cream of tartar. Mix in vegetable oil, food coloring, and water while stirring. Once the dough balls together place it on a floured surface and knead together until dough consistency. If the dough is sticky add more four.

Here is a link to a YouTube Channel that has a variety of drawing videos that are fun to watch.
