SINGLE RECIPE - CAN BE DOUBLED!
4 tbsp baking soda
2 tbsp white vinegar
½ tsp Light or Golden Corn Syrup (known as Karo syrup in some countries)
2 tbsp cornstarch (known as corn flour in the UK)
Food colouring (Wilton Gels produce a more intense colour than liquid food colouring)
Mini Muffin Tin (or ice cube tray)
In a 2 cup measuring cup, mix baking soda and vinegar, and wait for fizzing to stop
Add corn syrup and corn starch and mix well until corn starch has dissolved.
Pour this thick liquid into the wells of a muffin tin or ice cube tray. (a double batch of watercolours half-filled all 12 compartments of a mini muffin tin).
With a toothpick or popsicle stick, stir in food colouring, and mix well for about a minute.
Set tray in a warm place to set and dry overnight.
When paints are dry to the touch, they're ready to use.
