Homemade Watercolors


After watching a video that was posted to FaceBook about DIY Watercolors I really wanted to try it. Usually I don't try or it doesn't work out like it should. But i'm excited to say that I did and it worked out great...

Here is what you will need:

  • 1 Cup-Baking Soda
  • 3/4 Cup- Vinegar   
  • 2 TBSP- Corn Syrup 
  • 1 Cup- Corn Starch 
  • Food Coloring 
  • Ice Tray 
  • Mixing Bowl 
  • Mixing Spoon 
  • Toothpicks 



Then just watch this video and do what they do! http://skl.sh/diy-watercolor-tutorial

Mix the measured ingredients in the same order as the video. 
1 Cup-Baking Soda
3/4 Cup- Vinegar   
2 TBSP- Corn Syrup 
1 Cup- Corn Starch 
Pour the mixture into your ice tray and start creating your colors with the food coloring.
Make sure you mix the food coloring in well with the toothpicks. You can use a new toothpick for each color or use the same one for like colors. 


Let it sit over night... Mine were a little wet in the afternoon of the next day. I just dabbed them dry with a paper towel. 

 These are my results of my Homemade Watercolors painted out :) 

This was so fun and mess everyone should definitely give it a try!!!!
