Place small drops of food coloring in eash bottle. Shake the bottles to mix the paint. Continue adding food coloring until desired shade is achieved. Paint as usual! Paint will completely dry on paper. Store the paint with the lids on top. Paint will separate after sitting for awhile. Simple shake the bottles up again and they will be as good as new!

This makes a great finger paint too. I make it many times when my kids were young. They enjoyed mixing colors to create new colors.
