Making temporary tattoo paint is a process that only takes a few minutes to complete. There are many different ways to make temporary tattoo paint, but Creativebug offers a solution that does not require henna powder or long waiting times. In order to create your own temporary tattoo paint, you need unsweetened drink mix in the colors you want, water, corn starch, a measuring cup, two bowls and a spoon.
- Mix corn starch and hot water
Pour 1/4 of a cup of corn starch into a small bowl. Add 1/4 of a cup of hot water to the bowl and stir the mixture with your spoon. Wait until the corn starch has evenly dissipated into the water before working on the next mixture.
- Mix drink mix and hot water in a separate bowl
Take out a separate bowl and empty two of your unsweetened drink mixes into it. Make sure you are using the colors you would like for the tattoo, or combine different drink mix packets to create the color you need. Add 1 cup of hot water to your bowl, and stir the mixture with a clean spoon until it has completely dissolved.
- Combine both mixtures and stir
Take the bowl with the corn starch mix and slowly pour it into the drink mix bowl. With your spoon, mix all of the substances together. Once the coloring is evenly distributed and the texture is thick, stop mixing.
- Paint your design
Paint your desired design. Let the paint set on your skin for one hour before rinsing with warm water. The design should last for a few days.
