Resep Dough

Posted on: June 3, 2010

Nah, ini ada lagi resep plastisin/doh. Kalau plastisin ini tidak pakai lem putih (kalau clay pakai lem putih). Semua bahannya dari makanan. Jadi lebih aman untuk anak-anak yang lebih kecil. Tapi kalau di simpan lama awet nggak ya? (Katanya sih, awet)

Traditional Play Dough
1 cup flour
1 cup warm water
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon oil
1/4 cup salt
food coloring
Mix all ingredients, adding food coloring last. Stir over medium heat until smooth. Remove from pan and knead until blended smooth. Place in plastic bag or airtight container when cooled. Will last for a long time.

Ingredients
Playdough is a classic childhood toy everyone can have fun with, and it’s so easy to make at home you’ll never buy that stinky store variety again.

Basic ingredient ratios:
2 cups flour
2 cups warm water
1 cup salt
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon cream of tartar (optional for improved elasticity)

food coloring (liquid, powder, or unflavored drink mix)
scented oils

Mix and heat
Mix all of the ingredients together, and stir over low heat. The dough will begin to thicken until it resembles mashed potatoes. When the dough pulls away from the sides and clumps in the center, as shown below, remove the pan from heat and allow the dough to cool enough to handle. IMPORTANT NOTE: if your playdough is still sticky, you simply need to cook it longer.

Knead & color
Turn the dough out onto a clean counter or silicone mat, and knead vigorously until it becomes silky-smooth. Divide the dough into balls for coloring.
Make a divot in the center of the ball, and drop some food coloring1 in. Fold the dough over, working the food color through the body of the playdough, trying to keep the raw dye away from your hands and the counter. You could use gloves or plastic wrap at this stage to keep your hands clean- only the concentrated dye will color your skin, so as soon as it’s worked in bare hands are fine.

Work the dye through, adding more as necessary to achieve your chosen color.

If you use unsweetened drink mix for color, test on a small ball first- it won’t go as far as the “real” food coloring

Play and store
Play with your playdough- I really don’t need to help you there. It’s entirely edible, if a bit salty, so it’s kid-safe.

When you’re done store it in an air-tight container. If it begins to dry out, you can knead a bit of water in again to soften the dough back to useability. Once it’s dried past a certain point, however, you’ll just have to start over; thankfully it’s not terribly difficult.
