Need more red paint? We do. We always do. And by "we," I mean Gavin. He is perpetually worried that we are running out of red paint, his favorite color. In fact, if I paint with him, each dip I make into the red paint elicits a small gasp from him, followed by, "Can you please not use all the red paint??"
So when I came across this post on how to make your own water colors, I knew that we were in luck.
It's very easy to make. Mix together:
- 3 TBSPs Cornstartch
- 3 TBSPs Baking Soda
- 3 TBSPs Vinegar
- 1 1/2 tsps Light Corn Syrup
Let it sit overnight to harden.
To be honest, I had my doubts about how well this would work. But these paints are kind of awesome!
Now we worry no more about the red paint shortage in our house!
