Add 1/3 cup water, and 1/3 cup flour

A regular kitchen funnel was too small for adding the flour, it took way too long

So I made a paper funnel cone!  Worked great 😉

And combine / shake

For the last bottle I tried combining the flour and salt with color first, THEN adding the water.  (Technically my 3 yr old did it)

It worked MUCH better!

I love that part of the fun of this is actually making the paint.

So, it’s equal parts water, flour, and salt, with a few drops of food coloring.  Don’t mix it up first then try to get it into the bottles, it’s too thick and messy!
