How To Make Fruity Taste Safe Runts Watercolor Paint
2 – Fill each cup about ⅔ of the way with warm water. Using small shot glasses keeps your paints more concentrated. The more candies you use, the deeper your colors will be and the more water you add the more dilute the colors will be. It can be fun for kids to experiment with different mixes.
3 – Let the Runts sit for a minute or two and then give them a stir. The colors will come off the outside of the candies quickly. When they are colourless remove the Runts with a spoon. This is to stop the paint getting gritty when the candies dissolve.
4 – You can use the Runts Paint like you would any watercolors. And why not print out our free Apple Coloring Sheet for some fruity themed fun? Grab yours below.
