How to Make Your Own Paint


Spray Paint Recipe
Instructions for making your own spray paint, shared by Lynnette in New Zealand!

Materials Needed:

  • Water
  • Food Coloring
  • Spray Bottle

Mix the water and food coloring together in a spray bottle. Experiment with adding more or less food coloring to get the desired effect. Hold the bottle about a foot or two away from your paper and spray!

For a little variety, place different shaped paper or items such as leaves on your paper and spray over them so that they leave behind a pattern once removed.
