Puffy Paint Recipe

Puffy paint is another kind of texture paint that is useful for Dioramas and Expressive Art. This paint dries with a soft, raised texture similar to the puff paint you can purchase in the store. Consider adding in food coloring or even a pinch of tempura paint to change the color….just be careful with clothing!
