Make your own "quick paint" using only two ingredients!
This is one of our favorite homemade paint recipes, and that is in large part due to how easy it is to make.  I can whip these paints up so fast that my kids call them, "quick paints".  These are a favorite with the kids as well, because the paints dry glossy and shimmery.  Are you ready for the recipe?

NOTE: They sell clear hair gel at most dollar stores- score!
Method
  • Begin by pouring the desired amount of hair gel into a jar or bowl, using one jar for each color of paint that you wish to make. We used empty baby food jars, and these worked great!
  • Add several drops of food coloring to each jar, and then stir until combined.

  • That's it!  Sprinkle in glitter if desired, and the fun & creating can begin!

Gel paint is great to use with brushes or as a finger paint.  The colors are vibrant, and the paint itself has a really neat texture that feels fun between tiny fingertips!

Quick paints dry glossy and slick, giving them a really fun texture once dry, too!

Store your paints in an air-tight container between uses, and they can be used again & again!
