Introduction: How to Make Colored Paint

About: I'm your casual 12year old, I enjoy looking at instructional tutorials.

Step 1: Ingredients

1/2 a cup of plain flour (sifted) 3-5 drops of food coloring of your choice 20-30ml of water or more 1 teaspoon of olive oil Airtight container to keep paint from drying out A little teaspoons of PVA to thicken up the mix

Step 2: Method

In a small bowl add your half a cup of plain flour and in a small dish mix your water and food coloring so you can add it in with the hassle of mixing more.

Step 3: Last Steps

Add oil and PVA glue (PVA will make it more paint like, enjoy the paint and you may want to add more water if very thick. Thank you for taking your time to read my Instructable :)

    Um I don't know about charcoal and flour but you could try with just PVA water and maybe a little bit of flour, don't do 1/2 a cup but just until runny ( not to runny others wise it will just put water on your painting surface) don't forget to vote for my instructable that is if you enjoyed of course

    Cool! Could I make black paint using charcoal?

    If you don't sift it it will be lumpy ChrysN I made that mistake :0

    Cool, I'll have to remember this.
