1

Pop the marshmallows into a large bowl and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir. Pour in the water and heat for another 30 seconds. Add the liquid glucose and mix until the mixture reaches your desired paint consistency, you want it to be runny enough to paint but not too liquid that you can’t paint with it. – we recommend adding the liquid glucose a little bit at a time. Be careful, the marshmallows will be very hot when they come out of the microwave, get an adult to help!

2

Divide your paint into separate bowls depending on how many colours you would like to make. Add a couple of drops of Food Colour Gel to each bowl and stir the colour through, adding more colour gel if you would like a brighter colour.

3

You are now ready to get creative with your edible paints, they will keep in an airtight container for a couple of days.

4

Once you have used your marshmallow paint they will not full set so be careful not to smudge your artwork!
