Approximate Time: 15-20 minutes

Supplies:

Ad

  • 6 tablespoon self rising flour
  • 6 tablespoon salt
  • food coloring
  • water
  • cardboard

Instructions:

Directions:

  1. Mix the flour, salt, and water (enough to form a paste) together until you have a thick paste.
  2. Next separate some of the paste into different dishes or an old muffin tin works great.
  3. Then add your food coloring.

  4. You can use paint brushes or cotton swabs to paint onto the cardboard. Make sure you brush the paint on thick so that it will puff up when you're done.

  5. Once you are finished painting place the cardboard picture in the microwave for 5-10 seconds.

Cool! If you only have all-purpose flour, could you add baking soda? If so, how much? Thanks. :)

Have not tried making it with all-purpose flour and baking soda. But I am sure it would work because that's what is in the self-rising flour. Might have to experiment with the measurements though.
