Can you use vegetable oil to make moon sand?

Moon Sand Recipe
The ratio to make moon sand is simple – 8 cups of all purpose flour : 1 cup of vegetable oil. I decided to quarter that recipe and make smaller batches of moon sand and add a half a teaspoon of tempera powdered paint before combining it all together.

How do you make moon sand?

The recipe is simple: 8 cups of flour & 1 cup of oil (we used baby oil). Mix it up really well until all of the oil is incorporated into the flour. It will still look like flour (albeit full of teeny tiny lumps from the bits of oil), but it is moldable just like Moon Sand!

Can magic sand get wet?

When ordinary sand gets wet, the result is a clumpy mess. However, “Magic Sand” begins as normal looking sand, until it's coated with a substance that repels water. This special coating keeps the sand dry even after it has been dumped into a container of water.

How is sand formed?

Sand is typically made mostly of varying amounts of material weathered from inland rocks (or seacliff material) and transported to the beach on the wind or in rivers, and/or shells and other hard parts precipitated out of the ocean water by marine organisms. Sand therefore records processes at a variety of timescales.
