Gluten-free Milk Paint

This paint produces pastel but vibrant shades. The finish is flat and transparent. Layering it over other colors is fun.

What's needed

3/4 cup powdered nonfat milk and 1/2 cup water

Or 1 cup condensed milk

Natural food coloring

Natural flavored extracts

Let's make it

Dissolve the powdered milk in the water, or use condensed milk. Check if milk is manufactured in a gluten-free facility, if concerned. Pour into the small containers and add coloring until the desired color is reached. Add flavoring to create desired smell. Store in the refrigerator. This paint does not last long, even in a refrigerator. Use it as soon as possible.

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.
