"With this quick and easy finger paint your child can finger paint for just pennies. It's perfect for using on paper or in the bathtub. The dish soap makes this finger paint wash out of anything my girls have painted with it. Keeps for at least a week in airtight containers. A fun painting option is to cover a tray or cookie sheet with waxed paper and have your child spoon paint over it in different colors. Cover with another sheet of waxed paper. Your child can press down on the colors and watch them blend and move."

"I made this last night and was excited to take it to preschool today. I put it in a plastic container with a snap on lid. This morning, the wonderful finger paint had turned into pourable liquid paint! It definitely WAS NOT finger paint. I don't know what went wrong or why it changed texture."
"Fantastic recipe, it's the perfect consistency! Two tips though: don't stir continuosly (took me a while to figure this out!) and NEVER EVER use neon purple or pink food dye you will have pink arms the whole next day!"
"Wonderful. I paid almost $5.00 for three small bottles of bath paint. I made this for less, and have 2 or 3 times as much. I used L.O.C. and it worked great. The kids LOVED this in the bath, and when they are bigger I'll let them paint with it. Thanks."
"I made this for my 6 year old craft lover over 2 months back and I placed it in a lock-n-lock and it is still good! This has turned into hours and days of fun for me and my little girl. So easy to prepare even if you don't have clear liquid soap on hand (Dawn worked perfectly). I'm actually copying the recipe for my mother-in-law to make her babysitting time even more enjoyable for the two of them. Thank you for a great fun recipe. God bless!"
"Love IT!! My daughter and I have so much fun painting with this and it's a breeze to clean up. Thanks for posting this."
"We made these for bathtime tonight and they worked well. I may have put too much food coloring in my little containers, and my fingers got stained somehow, but their bodies and the tub were fine. We only made up a few Tbsp of each color and saving the rest of the clear gel for next bathtime since we didn't have enough small covered containers. Thanks!"
"Thanks, this is exactly like the recipe I remember from a kid's cookbook when I was small and now I make it for my own wee ones. Messy fun for everyone!"
