I made this dough according to my usual recipe, with a few adjustments. I made two batches, and instead of using food dye I used silver watercolour paint and gold watercolour paint. I probably used about 2-3 tbs of each. The paint is super-metallic on its own, but was dulled a bit when mixed with the flour. So I added silver and gold glitter – both of which I got from the splendid people at craftprojectideas.com! Then I had the right colour and the right sparkly-ness.

I brought the play dough out at a crafty playdate and also provided gold and silver sequins and pom poms, plus some silver mini cookie cutters. The kids had a great time making their sparkly creations!
Some of the glitter did come off after play, so be prepared for a little bit of necessary clean-up afterwards. I store the play dough in a sealed bag in the fridge, then get it out 15 mins before play. It is absolutely fine to store it at room temperature, but sometimes I find that it can get a little too soft.
