Cotton Clay


3 cups cotton balls
2 cups water
2/3 cup flour
5-7 drops food coloring


Tear cotton balls into small pieces.  Mix water and cotton balls together in a medium saucepan.  Slowly stir in flour.  Continue stirring and cook over low heat for 5-7 minutes or until the mixture begins to stiffen.  Remove saucepan from heat and place the cotton clay on a thick cloth towel to cool.  Allow cotton clay projects to dry for 24 hours or until hard.
