The ultimate list of homemade paint recipes - 45 awesome ideas!

We love painting and making our own paint.  I enjoy experimenting with different ingredients to come up with new recipes for play.  The best part about homemade paint is that it is usually cheaper than store bought paint.  Also, the sky is the limit when it comes to homemade paint!  You can use whatever ingredients you want, make a variety of colors, texture the paint how you choose and more.  Be sure to check out my collection of edible paint recipes safe for babies and toddlers.  Here are our favorite recipes for homemade paint
