If you like a smoother consistency, heat up the water beforehand and add the salt first, stir and then mix in the flour. 

Don't worry if the mixture turns a bit purple when you add the water, it's completely normal and it'll turn into a neutral shade quickly once you start mixing everything together. 

STEP 2: Add the colour.

Now you simply need to divide the mixture into different containers and add a different food colouring into each one. Stir well until you get a smooth coloured mixture.
