- 1 Cup Flour
- 1 Package Unsweetened Powdered Drink Mix
- 1/4 cup Salt
- 1 1/2 Cups Water
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons Oil
- Liquid Dish Soap (optional)
Please be aware that most drink mixes can stain skin and other items it comes in contact with. Wash hands and anything else the powdered drink mix comes in contact with as soon as you are done painting.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, powdered drink mix, and salt. Put it aside. Measure the water into a medium sized pot and bring it to a boil. Add the oil to the boiling water. Pour the water and oil mixture into the dry ingredients and mix them until they are smooth. Add a few drops of liquid dish soap to your paint mixture and blend carefully so you don’t make the mixture bubble. This is optional, but it may help with clean up! If the paint is too thick, add more hot water, a little at a time, until it is the consistency you desire. Set your paint aside and let it cool before you use it.
Now you can have fun using this finger paint on heavy paper! Use paper made especially for finger painting or even freezer or butcher paper.
