DIRECTIONS

  • Pour plaster into a clean container (like a coffee tin or ice cream tub).
  • Using a disposable stir-stick, stir in most, but NOT all, of the water.
  • Add 2 tbsp of the liquid tempera paint, mixing well, especially at the bottom; add another tbsp of paint if you think it needs it.
  • Add a little more water as the mixture thickens.
  • Stir well and pour into small containers, such as the tiny dixie paper cups.
  • Peel paper off after the chalk dries, give to the kids, and let them have fun; outside, of course!
