Edible Body Paint

Introduction: Edible Body Paint

About: Paramedic. Hazmat. Fire. WMD. ON CALL FOR LIFE<3

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:

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

Step 1:

Boil 1/4 Cup of water in the microwave 60 seconds.

Add one packet of unflavored Gelatin and dissolve.

Set aside.

Step 2:

Add 1/2 cup of cornstarch to 2 cups of boiling water.

Add 1/3 cup corn syrup. This will make it taste good.

Take off of the burner and stir so theres no clumps.

Step 3:

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 

Step 4:

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=)

    I tried multiple times with the gelatin and failed so I did it adding boiling water and added l corn starch and corn syrup with a food color and flavoring and it came out perfect I’m also vegan but I tried it without the gelatin and it worked fine just strained it through a strainer to remove clumps not all came out but it did what it’s supposed to
