Potter’s Playdough (from Eileen de Rosas)

This was always my favorite play dough recipe, because the texture felt “just right” to me. No surprise, since it came from my friend, ceramicist Eileen deRosas:

Measure into a small saucepan:

1 cup white flour

¼ cup salt

2 Tablespoons cream of tartar

1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

1 cup of water

food coloring as desired.


Stir over medium heat until ball forms. Cool on a floured surface.

Knead and play!
