save money: powdered paint

We’ve been Christmas crafting here all week, so prepare yourselves for lots of ideas and inspiration for your own Handmade Christmas busyness.

Here’s a tip on how to save money on tempura paint.

I bought this powdered paint a couple of years ago.  We don’t use this type of paint as much as water-color so it’s lasted awhile.

It’s cheap and a good way to ensure you don’t have dried up paint.  Dried up paint equals wasted paint.  I bought only colors that I couldn’t make by mixing colors:  red, blue, yellow, black, white, green (I went ahead and bought this because I knew we’d go through it fast).  I really like the control I have in mixing.  I can make any shade of pink, orange, purple, ect.  I got my supplies from Discount School Supplies.

Get your Christmas craft on!
