Puffy Paints

One Crafty Mumma has a super cool recipe for Puffy Paints. Mix this up, and microwave for 10-30 seconds. The paint will "rise" for a cool effect!

Puffy Paint

1 TBSP self-rising flour
a few little drops of food colouring
1 TBSP salt
Then add some water to make a nice smooth paste.

Paint away on a nice thick sheet of cardboard (if you don't have enough paint brushes use cotton buds - they work really well).
Microwave the design on high for 10 - 30 seconds until the paint puffs and it's all nice and dry. We did ours for 30 seconds.

Here's a recipe for self-rising flour, if you don't have any on hand.

Self-Rising Flour

1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Here's Hannah's and Carters creations. If you want some really cool pictures, and to see how how the paint can really rise, check out One Crafty Mumma's photos!
