Jelly Paint

Jelly Paint

Jelly paint is wonderful to use with babies from when they learn to sit for their very first ‘messy play’ experiences! It has a lovely texture, and you don’t have to worry about what is going into their little bodies should they put a fistful of the paint in their mouths.

1/2 cup of natural food dye

1 heaped tablespoon cornflour.

Mix the natural food dye in to the cornflour slowly, at first to make a smooth paste, and as you add more of the natural dye, to make what will eventually look like a milky liquid. Put the liquid into a saucepan, and stir constantly over a high heat, until it starts to thicken, turn off the heat and continue to stir until it becomes a thick clear, jelly-like textured paint.
