How to Make Edible Condensed Milk Paint

Thanks for Sharing!

This Edible Condensed Milk Paint is a sweet substitute to regular paint for little kids. Look past the stickiness, and know that your little ones can paint safely.

What do you use to make Edible paint?

You can make Edible paint with ingredients from your pantry. You can use ingredients like All-Purpose Flour and Condensed Milk, etc. Homemade Condensed Milk paint is a fun and edible type of paint you can make for your little ones. Grab some ingredients from your pantry and let’s get right to it.

How do you use Condensed Milk in paint?

Using condensed milk in paint is easy. All you need is Condensed Milk and Food Coloring. You don’t need to mix it with water, oil, or any other food products.

Can you Color Condensed Milk?

Yes, you can color Condensed Milk. You just need a means of food coloring to do so.


How do you color Condensed Milk?

To color Condensed Milk, add drops of food coloring until you get the desired shade of color. Start with one drop, then move on to two, and so forth.

Kool Aid and Jell-O are two other foods you can add to color Condensed Milk. The Powder form of the Kool Aid and Jell-O will get into the paint if not mixed with a tiny bit of water to help them dissolve a little.

I have not tried this one but I’m guessing natural vegetable juice such as the raw juice from beets will add color to Condensed milk too. Be careful not to add to much liquid because you still want the milk to be thick enough to be able to paint. If you want the texture of the Condensed milk to be as close to paint as possible, then add food coloring.

To make edible Condensed Milk Paint

What you need: 

  • 1 Can Condensed Milk
  • Food Coloring
  • Small Bowls

What to do:

  • Pour 1 to two Tablespoons Milk in a small bowl.
  • Add a drop of food coloring to the milk, stir.
  • Add more food coloring as needed.
  • Note: To make more “paint”, add more milk and more food coloring as necessary. The first time I made these, the instructions was to empty (divide) one can nestle milk into 4 little bowls. But as I remade this, I realized that one can of milk is too much. I don’t even think I used that much the first time around.

The kids can paint with the milk now. Be careful though, because the milk is sweet and quite sticky. It should be thrown out when the kids are done. Otherwise, you may have some hungry little ants building their homes in your home.
