Looking for an interesting Romantic Valentines Day or Anniversary Gift? Why not make your own edible body paints to enjoy a fun, flirty, romantic evening that you won’t soon forget!

Homemade Edible Body Paint #1

Step 1, Create a Gel Mix:

1/4 cup hot water
1 Packet Unflavored Gelatin (Dissolved)

In small saucepan blend and cook over low heat:
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 c. cold water

Carefully add :
gel mix
1/4 cup glycerin.
2-3 drops flavoring of your choice.

Divide into small bowls (the ziploc mini disposables work great!) Add 1 or 2 drops food coloring per “Bowl” to get various colors
*Note * This will stain, but to remove stains from body we’ve found that baking soda works quite well.

Homemade Edible Body Paint #2

Melt the following over low heat:
3 tbs. beeswax
3 tbs. coconut oil
3 tbs. cocoa butter

Remove from heat & Add:
1 tbs. honey powder (optional)
1/2 tsp. Any flavoring extract (Watkins has tons of great flavors)
food coloring to suit
