This is a great recipe--it is also the messiest stuff you ever got your
hands into (of course, kids love a "glorious mess") but you can reduce
the mess by putting the ingredients into a heavy, repeat, heavy, pint zip
lock freezer bag and mixing it by kneading the bag until it comes away from
the sides and the bag is "clean". It takes a good deal more mixing that
you think it will. Store unused portions in a plastic bag so it won't dry
out. You can make fine details with it. I have some pieces (jewelry) that
are 10 years old and still in good shape.
