Homemade Tattoo Paint

*originally posted 6/07*

We bought a really fun book that my eight year old found during one of our (many) visits to the library book store (my favorite place to buy and donate pre-loved books) called The Ultimate Book of Kids Concoctions.

The first thing she wanted to make was tattoo paint (page 23).
Here’s how to do it:

1 TBS Cold Cream
2 TBS Cornstarch
1 TBS Water
Food Coloring

Mix cold cream and cornstarch together in a small bowl. Stir in water and mix until smooth.
Divide into 3-4 small bowls.
Mix 3-4 drops of food coloring into each.
Apply with a small brush.
Remove with soap and water

    How neat! Just curious, how long does this stuff last on the body? Like, the full day? Do you think it’d be good as “face paint” too? Also, what is “cold cream”? *blush*

    BTW, hello from central FL! Smile

    I need to keep this stuff on hand. my 2 year old loved to doodle all over her self with what ever she can get her tiny hands on. pens, markers, (she’s even gotten into the sharpies) paints, ketchup . . .

    That looks like something we would do around here- although we try not to play up the fact that we are tattoed. -Michelle
