Let's make it
Measure cornstarch into saucepan. Add cold water to corn�starch and stir to make a smooth paste. Stir in boiling water. Place saucepan over medium-low heat and stir until boiling. Boil 1 minute; remove from heat. Cool. Spoon about � cup of thickened cornstarch mixture into each container, using a dif�ferent cup for each color. For each color, stir in food coloring and extract into cornstarch mix�ture. If paint is too thick, stir in 1 teaspoon water at a time until desired consis�tency is achieved. Store in refrigerator.
When mixing paint, keep in mind the age of your young artist. As a general rule, younger children require thicker paint and brushes. Adjust water as necessary for your child.
