Homemade Liquid Watercolor Paint. So easy to make, quick and cheap! Perfect for all kinds of craft projects.

Making your own Liquid Watercolors makes total sense. It is so easy to do, and very inexpensive. Liquid watercolors can be costly to buy, and if you use a lot of them as we do, then it is really worth the – little – effort!

These homemade paints really work well. I would use them for any art & craft Project.

The advantage of making your own paint is that you get to decide how ‘much’ color you want to add. Add a little coloring for pastel shades or a tiny bit more for vivid colors – like the ones we made above!

Liquid Food Coloring or Gel Food Coloring – Gel is usually a little stronger

Water Color Paper (A4) or Water Color Postcards  

Add the desired amount of water – the amount of liquid watercolor paint you want to make.

Then to each container add a drop – or two – of food coloring. You are going to have to experiment a little with the colors – as food coloring differs. Make sure you add a drop at a time – food coloring is more powerful than you think!

NOTE: This paint may stain clothing – because of the food coloring – so make sure to wear aprons when painting!
