I love home-made rather than gross consumerism. I love natural and knowing what is in a product.
I love that my grand kids could eat this watercolour paint and not get sick. It's a bit like that natural glue I make: delicious.
This wholesome and easy recipe for home-made watercolours (below) comes from DIY Watercolours at Oh My Handmade Goodness. That's their pictures too....my photography is never nice and clear and bright like theirs is.
Here's the instructions as found at DIY Watercolours. The author has some extra tips there as well so be sure to pop into her post and read her brilliance.
First, mix the baking soda, corn starch and light corn syrup together in a mixing bowl. Then mix in the white vinegar into your mixing bowl. You can divide this mixture into different containers and then add your food coloring for each color we placed 10-13 drops OR drop in your food coloring into the mixing bowl to make a large batch of one color.
Many thanks to Jessika Hepburn at Oh My Hand Made for producing an audible, "Oh My," utterance from me. LOVE this recipe.
