3 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 cups water
On medium low temp, warm all ingredients in a small saucepan stirring fairly constantly until paint thickens. Transfer to jars and mix in food colouring. This recipe makes enough to fill approximately 6 baby food jars.
Overall, this was a great recipe. Nohl was thrilled that he got to mix the food dye in to make his own colours. The only thing is that he doesn't like to have gooey hands..so he ended up using paint brushes to paint in an over-sized colouring book. This is finger paint, so the colours look much brighter in the jar than it did in the colouring book, but he still loved it!
I am now complete with a kitchen window full of his most beautiful artwork. BTW, he put price tags on all his art for when people come over ahahah so cute!
