How to Make Homemade Finger Paints


  1. Mix together sugar and cornstarch in a small pan, then slowly add cold water.

    Cook over low heat, stirring until the mixture becomes a smooth; almost clear gel about 5 minutes.

    When it's cool, stir in clear dishwashing liquid.

    Scoop equal amounts of the mixture into containers and stir in food coloring or, for even more vibrant colors, use food-coloring paste.
