Paint Recipes

Water-color Recipe

·    6 tablespoons baking soda
·    6 tablespoons cornstarch
·    6 tbsp white vinegar
·    3 teaspoons light corn syrup
·    small containers
·    food coloring

Mix ingredients.  Add small amounts to containers.  Add food coloring to get desired colors.  If the paint dries between uses, just add a few drops of water.

Puff Paint Recipe
·    4 tablespoons white self-rising flour
·    4 tablespoons salt
·    4 teaspoons water
·    food coloring

For a group you might need to make a batch for every color.  This works best with pictures that have large open areas to be painted. Mix all ingredients until smooth.  Dab on paper with a brush or craft stick to fill in an area.  Place in a microwave oven on high for 20 to 30 seconds.  Let cool and display.
