    what can you do with this playdo? does it dry hard? do you use it for designing clothing for characters like fondant? thanks for the help

    Karen – It’s like the soft child’s dough…it does dry, but it becomes crumbly/rubbery in a way that wouldn’t be ideal for modeling or crafts. It’s for play.

    Excellent recipe. Made it on the stove. Preheated the oil and water a bit, added a dash of vanilla extract. Stirred in the premixed dry ingredients. It came together very quickly. Added some gold glitter. My little guy loves it. Thank you.
