      I store these in individual jars as shown in the fridge. Makes approximately 300mls but I will need to check. It makes enough to fit all the jars shown.

      I’m sorry it wasn’t a success for you. This is a very popular one on our fb page and group. It always works a treat here. I can only assume an ingredient was missed? I’m not sure sorry.

    I whipped this up on a whim one afternoon in 2 different colours and popped it inside large ziplock bags which I taped to the window at my toddlers height. He had a ball pushing the paint around making shapes and swirls with the light from outside making the colours beautiful and vibrant. It was mess free and a hit!

      What a great idea. I can see my toddler opening or bursting it though…
