While liquid starch works for finger paint, collage and even paper mache and
marbling I don't use it because over time it is heat sensitive and breaks
down. I know it is more work, but I cook up batches of the powder starch to
thick or medium consistency (directions on box) at home when I have a
project. It makes really beautiful finger paint and can be stored in the
fridge for a week or so and is far less expensive. Good Luck, Linda White
