  •  3 tbsp cornstarch

Mix cornstarch and flour in a small bowl.  Stir in corn syrup and water and keep stirring until the mixture is smooth.  Divide the mixture into small containers – as many containers as colors that you want to make. Add food coloring to each container until you get the color you want. The paint is now ready to be applied on the face using a small paintbrush.
