Oooh, really really nifty, I love this idea!

Out of curiosity, what's the point of the vinegar+baking soda part? I thought that reaction just basically yields salt and water...?

I don't know, but it was really fun to see it foam up  Cheesy  It was just how the recipe I used said to do it.

This is a cool idea especially for little kids. 

I think it would be easier to just go buy some gum arabic and make waterpaints that way.  But I guess this is easier if you don't have an art store near by.

I would love to do a personal swap!

wow this is a really good recipe to have, thanks! I'll show it to my mum, she's a primary school teacher and i'm sure it will go down well.

Just wanted to add that you can use cornstarch to make sidewalk paint.

1/3 cup cornstarch
1/3 cup water
Food coloring

Mix water and cornstarch.  Add food coloring until desired color.
Use kid's large size paintbrushes and paint on sidewalk. 
Will look like chalk when dry. 
Rinses away with water.

This is an awfully creative (lol  Tongue) idea!
I really do like this idea because I already have almost all this stuff lying around, it's pretty damned simple, and I can make any
colour I want! Which in the end, is much better anyway because let's face it- all paints can be pretty expensive at the store. So if I can
save *any* money whatsoever on paints, I'll take it!!
Thanks a bunch for this wonderful tute!!

Alright, I have a serious query here. If you were to make these into stick shapes and taped papers around them, would it be similar to a watercolor pencil? While I am lusting for the full set of Neocolor watercolor crayons, it would be interesting to try for simple art journaling purposes.

I need to try this. I already buy the huge bottles of vinegar and huge boxes of baking soda and loads of food coloring, naturally I have to try this.
