Paint Powder Recipe:

  • Ingredients: Cornstarch and Food Coloring
  • Determine how much powder you want for each color and place that amount in separate bowls.
  • Slowly add 5-10 drops of food coloring to 1 cup of cornstarch.
  • Mix, this takes some elbow grease. The Cornstarch will become hard and lump together, but use utensils to smash it until it crumbles. 
  • Let the powder dry overnight, you can place it on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or in a plastic bag and leave it open.
    If you find the dried powder is clumpy, run it a few times in a blender/food processor
