Have you ever wondered how paint is made? Now you can make your own at home! It is super easy and really fun. You will need…

  • 3 Tablespoons of sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • 2 cups of water
  • food coloring
  • saucepan

 

First, you will combine the ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat until the mixture thickens. Let it cool and pour it into containers. Add food coloring. You can create new colors by mixing food coloring together!

    This very cool. I had no idea you can make your own homemade paint. What i really like about this is that it really works and it just very cool. Its cool that you just use cooking materials.

    That is really cool how you can make your own paint. I like how you tell us what we will need to make it and how to make it. I like how you can make it with just a couple of thing you cook with.I like how you go step by step of how you make your own paint.

    I think this is really cool and very useful. Paint can be expensive and sometimes can be hard to make. I think it is cool that you taught us how to make paint because we can useful on many occasions.
