Shiny paint


  • ¼ cup of clear corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of glitter
  • 6-8 drops of food colouring (optional)


  1. Combine corn syrup and food colouring in a bowl.
  2. Prepare as many bowls as you wish.
  3. Add glitter gently in order to distribute it evenly throughout the mixture.
  4. Paint on heavy cardboard using paintbrushes or other accessories.
  5. Allow paint to dry for 24 hours.

**Variation: To create clear shiny paint, avoid adding food colouring to the mixture. Use the clear paint to varnish drawings or paintings☺
