Paint Thickening Mixture

We use a mixture called glug. You use 1 cup of corn starch (you get it from boots) add this to 2 litres of boiling water, then add stir in 1 cup of soap flakes. Leave it over night. You then have a fantastic mixture which the children use to mix their own paint it makes the paint go along way. Paint is easier to get out of clothes and you don't need to use water. This then encourages the children to be totally independent.

we use the scola cell glue( paste powder 8 down ).. like wallpaper paste but no fungicide.. tis sticks to any paper, can be made to lots of consistencies and children can also stick any other items to their painting successfully.. we also use it for sticking parers and paper mache.. cheaper than PVA and easier to clean up.
