Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 2 cups water
  • 2/3 cup cornflour/cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp table salt
  • Food colouring drops - red, yellow, blue, green


  • Combine first four ingredients
  • Add to slow cooker and cook on HIGH for approx 30mins or until thickened - use tea towel under lid
  • Stir occasionally while cooking
  • When nicely thickened to paint consistency, spoon into storage bottles (baby food jars are great)
  • Add 6 drops of each colour to each jar - except for red which needed 25 drops to achieve a rich colour
  • Add lids tightly to bottles and shake each bottle vigorously to mix colour through paint.
  • Various colours can of course be created by mixing different food colours in each jar.
  • *Optional* - Add glitters to each jar for extra sparkle 🙂
  • Store sealed, in refrigerator. If paint get's too thick over time just add a dash of water and shake vigorously to disperse.
