Drawing with your fingers is much more fun than using a brush. Artists even have a special technique for drawing with their fingers. This type of art requires a special paint that is completely safe for the skin of the hands. You can certainly buy this paint in the store, but you can also prepare it yourself. And this is doubly interesting.
If you decide to make the paint yourself, for example, to draw a pictorial poster for a holiday, we recommend that you do it on the eve of the celebration. Because the homemade paint needs to cool down.
How to prepare paint for drawing with your fingers
So, you need to take a large pot and pour into it two glasses of ordinary cold water from the tap. Then add half a Cup of starch and half a Cup of soap shavings. Shavings can be set up with a special knife for peeling potatoes or grated on a coarse grater.
Next, put the pan on the stove and start to heat its contents over low heat, stirring constantly with a spoon or wooden stick. When the mixture becomes transparent, you will need to add one tablespoon of glycerol (this drug is freely sold in the pharmacy). All this should be thoroughly mixed again, and then poured into cups. To avoid spoiling home dishes, make cups using the bottoms of plastic bottles in advance.
In each Cup, we now need to add food coloring of different colors. All. Now put the cups in the refrigerator. This must be done so that the paint does not deteriorate. After all, although glycerin is a preservative, it is not able to prevent damage to the paint if it is kept warm.
After our paint cools down, you can go get creative. This is best done in a garage or shed. But you can also on the floor in the apartment after removing the carpet, if you have one in your room. You can also paint on the table, if your parents allow it.
Before you start drawing, put on old clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Now you have everything ready for creativity. Take a glossy sheet of paper and start putting your idea into practice by drawing a picture or an inscription with your fingers.
