How to Make Paint!

Paint is an essential crafting item and it can be used in so many ways, although it can get pretty expensive. In this post you'll learn how to make your own paint from things you have at home!


- 1 tablespoon of cornstarch

- 1/3 cup of flour (Blending or all purpose)

- A pinch of salt

- 1/2 cup of water

- Food colouring (any colour works)

Step 1.

Mix all of the dry ingredients (salt, cornstarch, and flour) into your bowl until they're fully incorporated. It should look like this.

Step 2.

Mix your food colouring into the water. Try to get any clumps of colouring out if you're using gel colour. It's OK if you can't get all the clumps out, it'll just make it a bit easier to mix. Of course if your using liquid colour you shouldn't have any problems.

Step 3.

Mix the water into the other ingredients, but be careful that you put it in little by little so that it doesn't form clumps. The finished paint should look like this. When I made this one it felt almost exactly like a store bought paint texture!


This was so fun to make and I hope you enjoy making it too! You can use this paint to design boxes, or colour your slime! (If you don't know how to make slime Click Here to see the post) Enjoy your paint!
