  1. In your mixing bowl mix 1 part conditioner to 1 part corn starch.
  2. Using your small spatula or spoon, blend the mixture.
  3. As you blend it, add a spoonful, or teaspoon of corn starch into the mixture, to get the texture. Keep mixing until you get the beginning of a Cloud texture. If it is moist, keep adding.
  4. Once you have reached a halfway cloudy texture, reach those hands in and knead that dough! It will stick to your hands at first, but after a while, it should solidify into a cloudy texture.
  5. Next, add the food coloring. Now make sure you only add a small dot at a time and blend, to avoid dying your hands. And when you add the dot, fold the dough over it so that your hands don’t come in immediate contact with the food coloring.
  6. Then add until you have reached your desired color.
  7. This dough wont last forever, as you know corn starch changes texture when in motion. Keep kneading it to restore the texture.
