I thought I saw some at Nova Natural, but now I can't find fingerpaint anywhere! Please save me from Crayola!

I can't either Here's what I am going to do: Is tempera paint made here?<br><br>
Fingerpaint Recipe<br><br>
Mix 1 1/2 cups starch with enough cold water to make a paste. Slowly add 4 cups of boiling water, stirring constantly. Cook until clear, avoiding too hot a fire. While still warm, stir in 1 1/2 cups soap flakes. Add 2 tablespoons glycerine. Add food coloring to portion which will be used immediately and store the remainder in the refrigerator in a covered jar.<br><br>
These paints work best on glazed paper such as shelf paper.<br><br><br>
Fingerpaint Recipe<br>
(no cook)<br><br>
Mix 6 tablespoons dry laundry starch with just enough cold water to make mixture liquid and smooth. Pour this mixture slowly into 1 quart boiling water, stirring well until thick. Add a drop of oil of cloves and mix again. Divide into portions (a muffin pan is a good holder) and add food coloring.<br><br>
