Homemade water colors

* Baking soda

* White vinegar

* Light corn syrup

* Cornstarch

* Half-dozen egg carton (or another container of your choice)

* Assorted food coloring 4-pack

1. In a mixing bowl, mix 4 tablespoons baking soda with 2 tablespoons vinegar until fizzing stops. Add 1/2 teaspoon corn syrup and 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Mix until a uniform consistency.

2. Pour the mixture into individual egg carton cups, filling each about a third to halfway.

3. Add five to 10 drops of food coloring to each cup, mixing in thoroughly, to reach desired colors. The more color you add the more vibrant.

4. Allow paints to set overnight. Use paints on watercolor paper with a wet paintbrush.
