Puff Painting

Looking for a simple crafty project for the littles?

I found this puff painting in MixTape Zine Kids Issue 7 

It's made of simple ingredients, qiuck to make up
and not much mess :)

The paint gives a great 3D effect

Mix together equal parts SR flour and salt.
Add enough water to give the consistency of white glue.
Divide into small containers and add food colouring.
We cut up cerial boxes to paint on,
paper will probably be a bit thin.
Microwave the painting for about 30 seconds,
the paint will rise and harden.

Happy painting
