Clown Make Up for 20


3/4 cup cornstarch
2 cups water
1/4 cup liquid soap
4 empty plastic containers with lids
food coloring (yellow, red, blue, green)


In a saucepan, mix the cornstarch and water. Heat over medium -high heat, stirring constantly.  After mixture boils, heat for 2 minutes more, continuing to stir. Mixture should be about the consistency of mashed potatoes. Let mixture cool until it is just warm. Add liquid soap. Divide the mixture into 4 containers, add food coloring to each container. Stir until well blended. This mixture dries slowly, so it does not tighten the skin too much. Because of the soap content, the makeup can irritate the eyes. Adults should apply any makeup around children's eyes.
