Home made puffy paint!

We thought we'd try making our own puffy paint yesterday! 
We mixed 1 tbsp of self raising flour to 1 tbsp of salt with enough warm water to make a smooth paste, then separated it into pots with different food colouring. After painting a 'masterpiece' we popped the painting in the microwave for 20 seconds.

 The paint hardened and puffed right up! Unfortunately though we only had coarse sea salt so it added an extra texture we could probably have done without!
 Here is the finished work - 'Sea with a bridge over'
