Stir it until it’s all mixed. If the dough is too sticky, add more cornstarch. If it is too stiff, squeeze in a bit more conditioner.

This dough cleans up very easily with a wet washcloth. It also revives well if it gets a little dry; just add water a few drops at a time and mix until it is the right consistency.
