Colored Flour Paste
|This flour and salt-based paste dries with a raised and sparkling appearance. It can be loaded into squeeze bottles and used as a substitute for commercial puffy paint. It is characterized by a sparkling appearance, intense colors, and dries with a gritty and somewhat brittle texture.|
- This flour paste is not edible. If you want to make an edible version, use food coloring instead of paint.
|1.||Combine equal parts of flour, salt, and water in a mixing container.|
|2.||Mix together until smooth and free of lumps. Adjust to your desired consistency as needed- add a bit of water if the mixture is too thick or add more flour if the mixture is too runny.|
|3.||Divide mixture into desired number of color batches.|
|4.||Add a small amount of poster paint or tempera paint into each batch.|
|5.||Mix until uniformly colored. Add more paint if you want to achieve a more intensely-colored paste.|
- Place the colored paste in covered containers and store in the refrigerator until next use. This high-salt paste will keep for months in the fridge.
- This paste is not edible. Label it properly before storage.
