Here’s a quick and simple do it yourself paint idea. We like it because there are only a couple of ingredients, it’s simple to make, and you end up with vibrant colors.
First, add two parts cornstarch and three parts vinegar to a container and stir thoroughly. For this test batch, we used 1/4 cup of cornstarch and 3/8 cup vinegar.
Once it was well mixed, we divided the big batch into individual cups for coloring.
Just add color and mix. Less coloring tends to produce more muted colors while more coloring leads to more vibrant paint.
Once your colors are mixed, it’s time to paint. I call this work Orange Kitty Cat Under A Blue Sky Hiding In The Grass Waiting To Pounce.
