This will help it soften so it can absorb the color more quickly and evenly.
Kneading means to repeatedly press your fingers into the clay.
The time you spend kneading will depend on the temperature and altitude you’re at, but it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes You'll know it's done when the color is distributed evenly all through the clay.
Add a small quantity (mini spoon) of colorant to the clay and knead it in.

Repeat this step as many times as needed to get the desired color.
This may take up to 5 minutes, so don't be worried if it doesn't change colors right away!
