    Consider this voted! Well done and I should really try this!!

    That's cool! We should make some

    My daughter loves playdoh and I was actually getting ready to go buy some. This may be a good project for us to do together. Thanks for the share.

    Make sure to vote! Haha

    No problem! Glad I could help! Make sure to comment back a picture, try out a bit with only 3/4 cup of water and tell how that turns out please! Good luck!

    Thanks emmagaff12. I appreciate you making this 'ible. I needed some for a project, but the new poly-modeling clay is very expensive. What happened to plain old modeling clay they sold back in the 1950's?

    I'll let you know how mine turns out. :-p
