How To: Make a Homemade, Non-Toxic Watercolor Painting Set Using the Stuff in Your Kitchen

Make a Homemade, Non-Toxic Watercolor Painting Set Using the Stuff in Your Kitchen

Feeling creative but don't want to venture beyond your kitchen to buy art supplies? Using baking soda, white vinegar, food coloring, and other common kitchen staples, you can very easily mix together your own watercolor painting set and create different colors in the individual slots of a mini muffin tray or an ice cube tray.

Simply mix together baking soda and vinegar until the fizzing stops. Then add corn syrup and cornstarch until the cornstarch has completely dissolved.

Divide the mixture up equally into the individual slots of a mini muffin tin or an ice cube tray and add food coloring to each slot until desired color is reached. Let sit for about two days until paints have completely hardened.

Once the paints have hardened, grab a paintbrush, a cup of water, and some paper and let your imagination go wild.
