This is really cool and super quick/easy. Combine the following in a little bowl:
- 1 tablespoon **self-raising flour
- a few little drops of food coloring
- 1 tablespoon salt
Then add some water to make a nice smooth paste.
Paint away (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 15 seconds.
**Making your own 'self-raising' flour:
- Using a dry measure, measure the desired amount of flour into a separate container.
- For each cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
- Mix to combine.
