1Combine first four ingredients

2Add to slow cooker and cook on HIGH for approx 30mins or until thickened - use tea towel under lid

3Stir occasionally while cooking

4When nicely thickened to paint consistency, spoon into storage bottles (baby food jars are great)

5Add 6 drops of each colour to each jar - except for red which needed 25 drops to achieve a rich colour

6Add lids tightly to bottles and shake each bottle vigorously to mix colour through paint.

7Various colours can of course be created by mixing different food colours in each jar.
