We have never made this type of paint but thought it looked interesting. We mixed equal parts of flour and salt in a tray. Then the kids picked which color of paint they wanted to make. They put a few drops of food coloring in the bowls of water and then mixed everything together. The result wasn't quite paint (or actually not paint at all) but was a fun, different sensory experience. All we had was wheat flour so maybe that is why it had such a grainy texture. Anyway, it was fun and the kids had a great time mixing and painting, not to mention getting a little messy!
