  • Food colouring of choice

How to make DIY paint:

what you need DIY paint

Mix the above ingredients, and put them into cups. We used the recipe above to make one colour and made another portion for the various colours. This paint went on paintbrushes relatively easy and is a great paint to play with within the bathroom.

bathroom tiles

We tested this paint on our bathroom tiles and it washed off easily. Do note that this might not be the same for all bathrooms, so be sure to do a spot test and wash it after leaving the paint to dry.

washable diy paint

We suggest ensuring it is washable before allowing your kid to paint on the various surfaces.

What you need:

DIY Non-Toxic Paint ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • Food colouring

How to make DIY Paint:

Mix the ingredients above and put them into separate containers or cups. We used the measurements above to make one colour. The texture of the paint was thick because of the corn starch, but the flour made it a little harder to clean off the brush, so we recommend using fingers.

It also did not absorb as well on thinner paper, so we attempted an abstract painting on the floor that turned out relatively well.

Do note that this might not be the same for all outdoor surfaces, so be sure to do a spot test and wash it after leaving the paint to dry. We suggest ensuring this paint is washable on the service your child intends to paint on.
