Make your Own Watercolour Paints

Watercolour Paints

Our boys love to paint which means we go through a lot of paper and paints. We find that watercolour paints are the best to use and so easy to clean up.  As we go through so much, I researched how to make your own watercolour paints that would hopefully work out a little cheaper. We made these paints in small plastic shot type glasses that I had picked up from a cheap shop. Originally, I had planned to use them to hold water for the watercolour paints, but worked out they would also be great for holding the paints we made too. What you need: bicarb soda cornflour white … {Read More}

Monday Memory Verse: Psalm 27:11

Psalm 27:11
