Adding a new medium to a classic art activity like painting is a great way to garner kids' excitement. Children love the shiny appearance of this homemade paint and, because it's edible, there are a variety of materials that can be used as a canvas. Start by painting on standard paper and then move on to toast, pancakes or cookies for a special treat.
Things You'll Need
- 1 can of condensed milk
- Ice cube tray
- Food coloring
- Paint brush
For this project you'll need condensed milk, food coloring, a paint brush and something to paint. Please see the last slide for an itemized list of tools and materials
Fill the ice cube compartments with condensed milk. Add a few drops of food coloring to each compartment and stir with a toothpick.
Use a paint brush to apply the edible paint to paper. The paint can be applied using traditional brush strokes or by letting it drizzle onto the paper.
The paint can also be applied to a variety of food surfaces using the same technique.
Tips & Warnings
- Paper creations are not meant to be saved as the condensed milk will eventually spoil.
