Home Made Watercolour Paints

Watercolour Paints

Home made paints, take two days to dry and have really good colours. Cheap to make and non toxic from everyday cupboard ingredients.

3 tbsp bicarbonate of soda
3 tbsp cornflour

3 tbsp white vinegar
2 tsp liquid glucose syrup
food colouring

Mix bicarb, cornflour, vinegar and glucose until it stops fizzing, seperate and add a few drops of food colouring to create the desired colours. Leave to dry on a windowsill for 2 days till dry.

**Liquid glucose is made 1 part water to 2 parts sugar, boil until sugar dissolved**
