You will need one large bottle 20 oz of conditioner (pick a scent you like) and  26 oz of cornstarch for a regular size recipe. We doubled the recipe and used two bottles (40 ozz) and 3 boxes of cornstartch (48 oz)

This playdough feels amazing to play with! The smooth silk texture makes it fun to mold and press.
