Notes: After trying different brushes, I found the sponge brushes to work the best with this paint. Also, this paint will settle if stored but can be stirred before use.

STEP 1: Get your supplies ready.

To start making this bath paint recipe, make sure you have all the supplies ready and prepare your workstation!

STEP 4: Bathtime!

To keep this paint mix good for a few baths, store it in an airtight container at room temperature and stir it before use.

I found the best tool to use this paint with are sponges or sponge paintbrushes. They were so much better and easier to work with than regular paint brushes, but you should experiment to see which you like more.
