Face Paints

4 teaspoons of shortening
2 teaspoons of white flour
5 teaspoons of cornstarch
8 drops of glycerin (available at drug stores)
Gel food coloring (available at grocery stores)
Mix shortening, flour and cornstarch until it forms a thick paste. Add the glycerin drops and and stir until mixture is smooth and easily spread. Divide the mixture into several small cups. Add food coloring gel in small amounts to each cup until you've mixed the colors you'd like to use.
To make the paint easier to remove, smooth a little bit of cold cream into the child's cheek before applying the face paint. Use a paint brush or cotton swab to paint on your design. Paint is removable with soap and water.
