How to Create your own Plant Paints from Items Around your House

Here is the supply list for November 29th. I have included the recipes below. Not all supplies are required but participants can create different types/ colours of paints the more supplies they have.

Paint brushes
Paint Tray
Red Cabbage

Recipe 1:
Using this recipe, you can make green, yellow, red, orange and purple paint. For green you can use spinach, saffron for yellow, beets for red, carrots for orange and finally red cabbage for purple. This recipe is for dry fruits and vegetables that can’t be mashed.
The steps are:
1. Add boiling water to the fruit or vegetable
2. Press and smash the fruit or vegetable using the back of a spoon
3. Strain the juice
4. To every teaspoon of fruit or vegetable dye, add 6 teaspoons of powdered sugar
· Note: The more water you add, the more diluted the color will be at the end, so don’t add too much.

Recipe 2:
The second recipe is very similar to the first; there are very few differences. This one’s for fruits and vegetables that can be easily mashed and don’t require boiling water to make juice. You can use this recipe to make red paint using strawberries, grenade seeds or raspberries.

The steps are:
1. Add the finely chopped fruit or vegetable to a strainer and mash them with a spoon.
2. To every teaspoon of the dye, add 6 teaspoons of powdered sugar

Recipe 3:
If you are using powders, then this is the recipe you should use. You can make brown paint, using powdered coffee or a dark yellow using powdered turmeric. The more coffee or turmeric you use, the darker your paint will be.

The steps are:
1. Dissolve the powdered coffee or powdered turmeric in warm water
2. To every teaspoon of coffee or turmeric dye, add 6 teaspoons of powdered sugar.
· Note: make sure the water you use isn’t too hot or too cold.
