Homemade Washable Face Paints

 Homemade Washable Face Paint

The boys had so much fun painting their faces (and arms..and legs..and feet) with very
  easily washable face paint 

Recipe for Washable Face Paints
Baby Lotion + Washable Paint (liquid or powdered tempura works too) 
+ Dishwashing Soap   (and it isn't an exact science) 


2 tablespoons Cold Cream + 4 tablespoons Cornstarch + Washable Paint 

I've tried both and they both work great! If you go with the 2nd recipe, just buy the cheaper generic white cold cream. Pictured below is the first recipe.  I put some lotion into each bowl, added a 1/2 teaspoon or so of powdered tempura paint, and 1 squirt of dish soap then stirred. If your going to use liquid tempura or washable paints such as Crayola, there won't be much difference in texture except maybe it wont be as thick. You can add a bit of cornstarch to thicken if needed. It can be easily removed with soap and water, just try to keep it away from the eyes. It's not tear free.

I set the boys up outside with their own mirrors and and brushes. My oldest was fine with the instruction to keep it out of his eyes, but I kept a closer watch over little B. 

   A beautiful mess!
