1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 tablespoons baking soda
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 tablespoon glycerin
plastic bottle caps or paint pans, or styrofoam egg
red, yellow and blue food coloring
1.Mix vinegar and baking soda
together in a small bowl.
2.When mixture stops foaming, add
cornstarch and glycerin, mixing well.
3.Pour mixture into bottle caps or
4.Add several drops of a different
food coloring to each pan or cap or carton cup. Stir
until the color is well-mixed. Be sure to add plenty
of coloring, since the tint will lighten upon
drying. Mix primary colors to make secondary colors.
For intense colors, try kool-aid or food coloring
paste (Wilton makes great food coloring pastes).
5.Let set overnight to harden.
This makes a good substitute for
purchased watercolor sets, but tends to be more
