On first attempt it would always look like you failed...Keep kneading for a good 5 mins. until it comes to the consistency of play dough..
I agree, the first time you make it, you think you are doing something wrong...Just be prepared to do a lot of kneading! (if you are an old breadmaker like me, then you will feel right at home! haha) The more you knead, the better it starts to feel, and gets much softer to work with.
I also add my colors at the melted marshmellow stage. It works better and has a more even color to it.
Also, when you are preparing your stuff to lay out, don't forget to put some crisco in a small bowl and grease up your hands! the first time I made it, my hands were full of a mess and I couldn't get to the cabinet to get crisco out!
