DIY Natural Watercolor Paints
You thought our powders were just for eating??? Well, have we got a surprise for you!!
Yes, we said it! We are taking "playing with your food" to a whole new level! No surprise, these natural pigments create a lovely array of earthy tones you will want to play with all day long!
“Why make your own paints” you may ask? Wouldn't it be nice to know your kids are painting with completely natural and non-toxic ingredients? No kids? What if the cat jumps up on the table or the pup gets into the paint water? With this watercolor recipe they could drink that nasty looking paint water if they wanted (it may even be good for them!) Trust us from experience...the kids will WANT to drink the turmeric and spirulina tinted water!! (We hear the raspberry paint tasted pretty good too)
Natural paints like these have been used for ages, so why not give it a shot yourself!! Here are our recommendations to get you started:
For Liquid Paints
For Solid Paints
Here is a list of the powders we used and their resulting colors once the paint has dried!
Don't be afraid to mix the colors to create your own perfect shade! Happy Painting!!
