Colored Play Dough

So I tried to make my first batch of homemade play dough. It went really well until I tried to use some food dye to make it green. The color did not mix well throughout the dough and it comes off on T and my hands. Any tips on making my playdough colorful?

Did you use the recipe where

Did you use the recipe where you add cream of tartar and cook it on the stove top? That's what I use and I haven't had any problems if I add the food colouring before mixing it all up and cooking. I've also added it after, when I was kneading the dough and it did come off on my hands, but once I worked it in it didn't come off when the kids played with it. If you do it that way, I'd start with a drop or two and mix it thoroughly before adding more.
