I had to adjust the water and cornstarch on a case by case bases but we had SO MUCH FUN!!! The kids made handprints on the pavement and painted tree trunks, among other thing. Thanks for posting this recipe, this will be a regular at our house!

This was alot of fun, but there is no way that you could actually use a paintbrush and paint with this. It made a very odd "slime" type mix that the kids loved touching. I will probably keep playing around with this to see if I can get it into a paintable mix. Thanks for alot of fun and great laughs.
