Homemade Finger Paints

1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 Cup cornstarch
3 Tablespoons sugar
2 Cups cold water
food coloring
dishwashing liquid
white shelf paper

Soak gelatin in 1/4 C water (warm) and put aside. In a medium saucepan combine cornstarch and sugar. Gradually add water and cook slowly over low heat, stirring until well blended.

Remove from heat and add softened gelatin. Dicide mixture into separated containers for each color.

For each color first add a drop or two of liquid detergent and then add food coloring a drop at a time until you have the shade you want.
