1/2 c. powdered starch
Cold water
1 qt. boiling water
1/2 c. soap flakes
1/4 c. talcum powder
Aluminum pie pans, one for each color
Poster paints or food coloring
Glazed shelf paper


Soften starch in a small amount of cold water. Over medium low heat, add boiling water to starch, stirring constantly until mixture bubbles up. Remove from heat and let cool. Add soap flakes and talcum powder and stir until well mixed. Divide mixture into as many portions as number of colors and add poster paints or food coloring to each one. With a wet sponge, wipe underside of shelf paper and press firmly to table top or work surface. This keeps the paper from slipping. Then wipe glazed side and spread on the paint.

Beat warm water into soap flakes until a pudding like consistency is reached. Add powdered tempera or food coloring. Squirt a small mound of aerosol shaving soap onto a cookie sheet. Add a few drops of food coloring and "paint" right on the sheet. Following package directions, mix instant vanilla pudding with water or milk. Use a cookie sheet for a painting surface.
