Children always have great fun finger painting. This paint is eady to make and very economical. Use the food colouring to achieve the desired colour- recipe is just a guide as it really depends on the colours that you are after. This recipe was from television "Burke's Backyard" about 10 years ago. Any soap flakes can be used to make this paint. Add Eucalyptus oil or dettol (zaar soesn't recognise dettol as an ingredient). Always in Australia, when times were tough, the good old Aussie spirit would always find a way! Making your childrens fingerpaints is by far cheaper than purchasing paints.
