  • To make it, all you need is cornstarch {lots of it!} and food coloring.  Color paste or gel coloring, works the best and will give you a bold color.  You can use liquid food coloring but you’ll end up with muted, pale colors and that isn’t nearly as fun! -

  • You’ll need large pans to mix the color powder. Foil pans from the dollar store are cheap and easy. I found them in sets of two so each pan was only fifty cents. Another purchase I would highly recommend? Disposable plastic gloves {affiliate link} to protect your hands from the color.

    In the pan, mix together 2 cups of corn starch and 1 cup of water. Mix together, using your hands as needed. The mixture is actually difficult to mix and I found it easier to get right in there with gloved hands and squeeze it together.

  • Once you’ve got it mixed fairly well, add one full 1 ounce container of coloring paste and, with gloved hands, mix until the color is blended throughout. Repeat this process for each color using new gloves each time.

    If you want a bigger batch of each color, double the corn starch and water. To save money, you don’t need to double the coloring. You’ll still get quite a bold color.

  • Place the pans in a dry location and let them dry out for a couple of days.  Over the drying days, I used a fork to stir and break up the powder a bit, letting it really have a chance to dry out.
