How To Make fluffy Sidewalk Chalk Paint

What you need

See article below

Instructions

3 cups flour

3 cups water

6 to 8 cups shaving cream (like Barbasol)

Food coloring: red, yellow, blue

6 squirt bottles

Basic recipe

Stir together 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of water until smooth. 

Add 10 or more drops of food coloring, remembering that the colors will be fainter once the paint is mixed completely. Stir to combine.

Fold in 2 cups of shaving cream until the color is even.

Transfer half of the paint to a plastic bag with the corner clipped. Squeeze the bag into a squirt bottle.

You can make TWO colors from each batch as follows:

Red and purple – Make the red first. Transfer half of the paint to a squirt bottle. With the remaining paint, add blue food coloring until you reach the desired shade of purple. If the paint has gotten flat, add an additional cup of shaving cream before transferring to the squirt bottle.

Yellow and orange – Make the yellow first. Transfer half of the paint to a squirt bottle. With the remaining paint, add red food coloring until you reach the desired shade of orange. If the paint has gotten flat, add an additional cup of shaving cream before transferring to the squirt bottle.

 

Blue and green – Make the blue first. Transfer half of the paint to a squirt bottle. With the remaining paint, add yellow food coloring until you reach the desired shade of green. If the paint has gotten flat, add an additional cup of shaving cream before transferring to the squirt bottle.
