Mix ingredients into a small saucepan.
Heat to boiling, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat as soon as the mixture reaches a dough-like consistency.
When cool enough to handle, knead slightly.
To color, add food coloring or tempera paint to water before adding other ingredients.
You may also leave the clay uncolored, ad pain, color with crayons, or markers when dry.
Store clay in plastic bags or an airtight container. Clay will remain pliable for several months when stored properly.
Models may be made from the clay and will dry to solid overnight.
