Homemade Edible Body Paint #1
Step 1, Create a Gel Mix:
1/4 cup hot water

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