How to Make Your Own Watercolors

Have you ever gone shopping for craft supplies for your kids and wondered "what's in this anyway?" I mean, when something says it's non-toxic, how non-toxic is it? (now I totally feel like I belong in a Portlandia video)
My friend, Heather from Dollar Store Crafts recently wrote a great article on how to make your own watercolor paints. You know it's non-toxic because you know every ingredient you used. It's also a great way to use up the corn syrup and corn starch that you stopped using in food when you switched to organic.


  • Vinegar
  • Corn Syrup
  • Baking Soda
  • Corn Starch
  • Food Coloring
