Watercolor paints were my favorite kind of paints to use as a child. I loved the wet mess that went along with painting with watercolors, but I never knew that you could make them yourself! Syfy and I took the opportunity to make up a batch of our own watercolors and had a blast painting with them! They were super easy to mix up and the colors the produce on paper is fantastic!
Creative containers to keep your paints in
You can get very creative with the containers that you choose to house these watercolor paints in. I chose to use a 7-day pill container for our watercolors, but you could use recycled bottle caps, lip balm tins, and more! The sky is the limit, simply get creative with what you have on hand around your house!
DIY Natural Watercolor Paints
- Mix ingredients (except the food coloring) together in a bowl. Pour into individual containers and add food coloring to each.
- You can either paint now with them or leave them out to dry and use just as you would any other watercolor paints. It can take up to a couple days for the paints to completely dry out!
