Make your own puffy paint

Puffy paint is a great way to add texture to an art project.

To make your own you will need:-

  • Cold glue
  • Shaving cream
  • Food colouring
  • Ziploc bag
  • Scissors


  • Add equal parts cold glue and shaving cream into a container
  • Add a few drops of food colouring and mix well. I like to use a craft stick to mix my paints, so that I can throw it away when done.
  • Store your puffy paint in a ziploc bag or sealed container.

You could also use your ziploc bag as a piping bag by cutting a small piece out of the corner and piping the paint onto paper.
