Get ready for the painting! Homemade WatercolorsHome Watercolor Recipe And Phase Photos


What is the reason for shortages almost constantly in a large family household? Yes, you are thinking well: toilet paper, paper handkerchiefs and pens. The latter is not limited to pencils, but to all types of paper.

How are watercolors for the home made?

In summer, when there is a break in kindergarten / school and at home all the kids are busy, somehow it is more obvious how much paper, pencils, crayons, paints they can consume in a very short time, and of course During this time, I'm going to waste my inventory - they just won't give you money. In that case, some creativity is good. If shop painters are expensive, let's not be lazy, let's make a home remodel. in this not only is it cheaper, but also unique: we can mix the colors we want for kids and we'll never get them in the store: jujube, hupililate, greenery, I love red - just color.

Let's see how you make it!

Contributions to 1-1 color variations:
  • 4 tbsp of sadabikbarb
  • 2 tablespoons of jelly vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of corn corn
  • food coloring (gel jelly is best, but liquid is good too)
  • shape that can make your ready-to-paint paint (metal muffin case is best because the dot looks like a palette)
I didn't have a muffin box at home, so I used glass pots, a full dose of red paint, and a half of light blue ones.Elkйszнtйs:
Sprinkle vinegar on the baking soda. It will sparkle, wait until it calms down, then stir them together. Add the corn syrup and starch.If we mix it smoothly (not simple, but do not give up lightly!), Add the food coloring and work on it. I used a loop box for this operation. Now, the hardest part is, you need to leave time for the paint to dry: in dry places it usually takes two days.If you don't want your kids to scold you when your watercolor is ready, let's start preparing for home supplies.Hint: corn syrup is not easy to obtain, but the home-made version is also available here.2-2.5 dl of corn syrup:
1 dl cold water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 dl sugar
1/2 teaspoon of citric acid Elkйszнtйse:
Stir the cornstarch with water and bring to the boil. If you get a yeast average, add the sugar and cook until it is considered syrupy. When thickened, remove from heat. Add the citric acid and mix well. Let it cool. Finished corn syrup in refrigerator takes 3-4 months.)

My home watercolors are ready!

There's no other option than to cover the table with wrapping paper and take away the paintbrushes. For children, drawing and painting is not a simple leisure activity, but an unambiguous resource. This kind of creativity develops attention, concentration, fine motor skills and all thinking skills, along with the learning process It also gives you an emotional surge. Creating together with brothers and sisters and friends also helps to develop and consolidate social skills.More from the author: A Mom with five Blog, Family Magazine, and Facebook Other super ideas:
