Ingredients

2 cups flour
2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cups cold water
2 cups boiling water
Food coloring (assorted)

Directions

1. Mix flour with salt.
2. Add cold water. Stir until smooth
3. Gradually add this mixture to boiling water. Boil until smooth and thick.
4. Add food coloring, then stir until smooth.
Bonus hint: Use freezer paper to paint on, to clip a few most costs!
