Recipe - Fingerpaint

One recipe just leads to another I guess.

I've used this in the classroom to help with the budget, and at home because it seemed silly to buy what I could so easily make.


1/2 cup cornstarch (80 g corn flour for my Aussie and British friends)
1 quart water (1 liter)

Mix the corn starch with a small amount of cold water in a pan until smooth. Add the rest of the water and bring to a boil. Cook until clear, stirring occasionally. * optional- if you plan to keep this for a while, add a few drops of oil of cloves or wintergreen to keep from souring.

Cool, divide and add food coloring, liquid watercolors or tempera paint.
Paint away!
