3 TBS. all purpose flour
4 TBS. Rice flour
3 cups water
1 tsp dish soap
½ tsp. glycerine
1TB. acrylic paint per cup of paste
Finger paint paper, lots of it, perhaps 10 sheets per participant
Bring 2 ½ cups water to almost boil.
Mix flours in ½ cup cold water into a roux.
Put roux into hot water on medium heat.
Stir (like making pudding) til starts to thicken.
Add paint to paper. Use finger, or any tool that makes a pattern…like sponges, forks, spoon, etc.
Let your inner self create fluidly. Let whatever colors get chosen get chosen. It all will tell you something.
Let your pictures dry, and then ponder them, looking for what they tell you about your inner life, or your outer life, your yearnings, you satisfactions. Whatever. Listen deeply.
Share what you have discovered in your small groups.
