Ingredients:  
4 Tablespoons of corn starch
Cold water
1 Cup of boiling water
Liquid food coloring

Directions:
Directions:
homemade paint.
In a medium saucepan, mix the corn starch with enough cold water to make a paste. (Not too runny).
.Pour in 1 cup of boiling water and stir thoroughly so there are no lumps..Turn on medium heat on the stove and mix. The mixture will start to change and you will notice some clear streaks forming in the mixture. Once you see this, turn off the heat and continue stirring. It will start to thicken and turn into a wonderful, custard-like consistency.
Spoon equal amounts into empty jars, cups or containers and add food colorings. Mixing until completely combined. For each color, we added 3 drops of yellow, green, red and blue. To make orange, we added 1 drop of red and 2 yellow and to make purple, we added 1 drop of blue and 2 red.
Store in the fridge covered with cling wrap for up to 2 weeks. This paint recipe does not have any preservative in it, so it is important to check that the paint has not expired before giving it to children.

Personal Notes:
Tip: If the mixture has harden from being in the fridge, adding a little bit of boiling hot water or leave the paint our for a few hours will return to its smooth consistency.
