This is a recipe for Edible Body Paint. Its in a Gel form. This isnt to be used as face paint for example , its used as play on bodies. Its a Romantic body paint. Ive seen others out there for up to 16$ And all it is are these ingredients. Now I can customize a make a lot of it at a time for a small amount of money.

You will need:

Cornstarch 
Powder Gelatin
Flavor (I used Banana Extract)
Food Coloring
Corn Syrup

Add a couple drops of your flavor- I used banana extract. very potent

Also used vanilla extract because I put vanilla in everything that vanilla would be good in =)

Add your food coloring now!  Dont add too much, a little goes a long way ...and you dont want to stain your skin

Now once its cooled down, find something you can use that will help draw on someone and not leak everywhere. I used my dogs medicine syringe. You can go to a pharmacy and ask for a childs medicine syringe (without needle of course , that requires an Rx) they will give one for free. 


Draw and lick off your paint=)
