Homemade Face Paint – Project Fail
I found this recipe on Pinterest for face paint and I will tell you up front I consider this a project “fail”.
The recipe I found on Pinterest required 3 Tablespoons of cornstarch; 1 Tablespoon of flour; 1 Cup of light corn syrup; 1/4 Cup of water. Mix the dry ingredients first then add the corn syrup and water. After it is all mixed together to be smooth – separate into multiple containers and add food coloring.
The food coloring never quite got the “paint” dark enough. And the paint never really fully dried on their cheeks – it remained sticky. I will have to try another recipe eventually. Or I could just suck it up and buy some facepaint – doubt that will happen though.
Definitely not my finest project but it entertained them for a little while. On to the next project.
