  1. Gather your materials

    Buy a container of condensed milk and a package of food coloring. Set out one disposable cup for each color of paint you are making. Grab a few paint brushes and paper or any other surface you want to paint on.

  2. Make the paint

    Pour 1/4 cup condensed milk into each cup. Add one color of food coloring to each cup of milk. Stir the milk to spread the color. Add more drops of food coloring as desired for deeper colors. Remember that red and blue make purple, yellow and blue make green and red and yellow make orange. You have the ability to make more colors of paint than you have contained in the food coloring tubes.

  3. Use your paint

    Your paint is ready to use when the color is mixed thoroughly into the condensed milk. Dip a brush in the paint, and paint your surface. Apply the paint in thin layers because it takes quite a while to dry.
