So far, we've only made one batch, which is red (really pink, but we pretend it's red). It is seriously the softest, best-smelling, longest-lasting home-made play-dough I've ever seen. I'd never tried cooking play-dough before, and I think that's what helps with the texture. We also added french-vanilla extract to it, so the salty smell is covered, and it actually smells nice.
Even better, it has lasted almost a month in the tupperware, and it's still just a soft as when we made it. I let Isaac play with it on a big cutting board on the table, give him toothpicks and a couple of cookie cutters, and he'll often play with it for a couple of hours.
